Sketches

Who doesn't love sketches?? They are great sources of inspiration and they are so much fun to use. I love looking at a sketch and interpreting it to make it my own. Today, I have a couple of things to share regarding sketches. First, I have a card that I made for Emma's this week. I created the sketch to go along with it.



I used Webster's Hollywood vogue paper on here along with a fun die cut from My Mind's Eye. The trim and the bloomer, which are Webster's were dry brushed with paint to give them a shabby feeling.



I also added a flower from one of the Webster's bouquets. And finally, the stamp comes from a Kaisercraft set.

You can see the sketch, along with the other cards that the team created, at the Emma's blog.

And, speaking of sketches, Paper Crafts has a call out for their next sketch book. I'm so excited about this one! I have three sketches in it - #s 37, 45 and 48. Check out the call here: Sketch Book Submissions. But, hurry! You only have until Monday night, Feb. 28th.

That's all for today. Hope you have a great day!
