Sketch Challenges

I have never done too much with sketch challenges but I am finding on days when my creative juices are just NOT flowing that sketch challenges can give me a "jumping off" point. Hero Arts always has a sketch challenge in addition to their theme for the month. You can check out this month's theme, color challenge and sketch challenge here.


Here are a few cards I made. Think I am only entering the first one.

I partially dry embossed the top with a Sizzix die. I know I could have done the entire card but didn't want the rough texture under the pattern paper I attached on the bottom half.

The black pattern paper is from Paper Studio Harper's BOUTIQUE (4.5 x 6.5 paper pad). I am loving all the different shades of black and patterns. 

I layered 3 of these sweet, sweet flowers stamped from Hero Arts CL527 Stitched Frame. Sentiment is a very old Hero Arts CL184 Sayings & Quotes.

Button is my stash from WalMart :) and some paper lace that I have had for a while.

Here are two others:

The pattern paper on the left is Paper Studio Classics. It is their 4.5" x 6.5" paper pad. The butterfly is a digi from Hero Arts Winged Friends and the bow is a Simon Says Stamp die. Both sentiments are Hero Arts.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by.
Blessings to you!

"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him."
Jeremiah 17:7
