Stamptacular Sunday Sketch

The challenge this week over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is a sketch. I love sketches. So much of the thinking is done for you. I have altered it just a bit. My image was so big that I couldn't put a sentiment at the top. I was so happy to finally use my hodgepodge hardware too. I used a combination of prismacolor pencils, baby oil, blender pens and ink for my coloring. I also added some crystal stickles to those flowers. They just needed something.

Please check out all the Design Team blogs to see how one sketch can produce so many different cards. That's so fun to see. Leave them a little love on their blogs too. You can find them on the left sidebar of my blog.

I'll be checking in this week to see all the creations you guys come up with. Oh Yeah! I'm the sponsor this week. So good luck on winning some free stuff:).

As you read this I am returning from our first camping trip of the year. I may have pictures to show.

Stamps: Echoes of Kindness, It's Your Birthday SU
Paper: Groovy Guava, Choc Chip, Vanilla, K&C Co.
Ink: Choc Chip, Groovy Guava, TH Distress ink
Other: Kaiser Mocha Pearls, SU Vanilla Hodgepodge, MS punch, Ribbon (michaels), blender pen, stickles, prismacolor pencils, baby oil
