I was so excited to be asked to make sample cards for the OWH Stars & Stamps Sunday Sketch Challenge. While I may not finish every sketch before the next one is posted, the collection of OWH Stars & Stamps sketches is where I start first when I sit down to make a card. There are over 100 sketches to choose from! If you are an overachiever like I am, you may even want to print out the checklist of all the sketches and join in the challenge to create a card using every sketch before the end of 2012. I just love sketches, don't you?!
I did two cards that used the exact same image and digi paper (both from Doodle Pantry). On the first one, I followed the sketch to a "T" and didn't add anything extra. On the second one, I jazzed it up a bit by adding some ribbon and a sentiment. Don't be afraid to use the sketch as a starting point and veer off course before you get done...that's what I love most about sketches - I can follow them like a recipe or I can make them my own!
Let's see what you can do! Be sure to link up your creations at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog. There is no deadline so join in whenever you can.
