[9.15.2013] wanna sketch no. 9

Wanna Sketch #9

Eeeek, we started off the challenge a little slow but ended with a BANG!!!  Thank you all for your amazing entries.  I just love seeing all the brilliant variations on these sketches.  It makes my heart so happy you were inspired by Wanna Sketch.  Ready for a few highlights?  I always have such a hard time just picking a few.



Oh Shannon… I am one of your biggest fans.  This is just too darn clever and oh so fun.  LOVE that you included the wood veneer arrow.  Love, LOVE, LOVE it!


Elise’s card is just way beyond adorable.  I love those kitties, the colors and the line of hearts.  Just too cute.  And I giggled that her husband has her make her own anniversary cards.  I think she made the perfect one for herself.


Ooooooh, just some stunning stamping going on here.  Piali used some of my favorite colors (yellow and gray) with those gorgeous blooms.  Beautifully done dear.

Gorgeous cards don’t you agree?  So what is on tap for our next sketch???




Ah yeah, bring out the tag again.  I just love tags.  {Of course, you are more than welcome to use a different shape.}  I’m wishing for fall, wishing HARD.  It is still in the 90’s here.  Ugh.  Hopefully we’ll cool down soon.  I couldn’t wait to play with this Unity stamp of the week — Acorn Greetings.  It just feels like fall!
I stamped the acorns with leaves, colored them with Copics and then trimmed them out.  Once I had them all colored, I went looking for some patterned paper to compliment it.  I just loved how the colors popped against the soft gray.  Perfection.

So are you ready to take this sketch on???  The linky will stay open until Friday, October 18 {11:55pm PT}.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Since I really enjoy making tags & tag-cards, I knew I HAD to play along.
