This weekend Stars & Stamps posted their 70th sketch for those really fun sketch challenges. I love this one, because it talks a lot about the simplicity of using things that you have at home to create shapes. Here is the sketch:
To make a big round shape as shown at the right, you could trace a saucer, jar, or any other round object . . . what a great idea for when you don’t have exactly the right shape!
Here is a little card I made following this sketch – I didn’t end up tracing something round, but I used a few leftover oval shapes that I had in my scrap bin, and a digi-stamp that came from the Stars & Stamps blog too.
I’m still using a lot of red white and blue as you can see – due to the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and the 4th of July. Have you made any red white and blue cards? If so, you should definitely stop over to Cindy’s Blog and participate in the Red White and Blue challenge! Scroll down a little to read about this challenge – but be sure to post your card up top for your chance to win some great stuff. . . and check out Cindy’s other pretty things too. :)
Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to stop by for the Memorial Day Blog Hop. . . coming soon! I just finished my blog hop project and I can’t wait to share!
