Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #102

Written by: iwona    11 Comments

It’s sketch time!! It’s also my second post for today so please take the time to check out my CASE Study 3rd Anniversary post below, if you haven’t yet done so! I’m celebrating the event with a big dose of satisfaction; CASE Study is very important to me and a lot of work has been put into making it what it is now. Endless fun too 🙂 I hope you’ll join us for all THREE Blog Hops!
But, back to the schedule… the sketch! It’s such a last minute thing, this one… these past two weeks have been a killer (as whenever I think it can’t get any busier…) and I’m writing this post with two hours to spare. Good enough, hey?? 🙂

I adore this sketch and I suspect it may be a favourite with many of you as well. I asked the super-awesome Laurie to help me with the sampling and I can already tell you that her card ROCKS ’cause I’ve seen it! Thank you so much for sharing this beauty, sweet girl! Here’s what I’ve done…

Yeah, I know… my butterfly overlaps the edge! (not that it’s wrong – you’re most welcome to have yours in one piece as well) It’s just that as I designed the sketch, I was especially giddy about that incomplete shape… only then as it came down to creating, I realized that I won’t be able to give my critter dimension if I were to cut half of its wing. It wouldn’t look right… so I stayed with the safe option and happily bent the wings up …then did the same to the sentiment flag, but that’s another story 🙂

My colours are loosely inspired by cQc#200:


If you would like to play along:

– You’re kindly asked to save the sketch image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
– Share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget below, so that I can come and check it out!
– A new sketch is posted every other Saturday night (8pm Australian EST, 6am American EST, and the link widget is open for two weeks. However, you’re welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section and I’ll pop in to see it.
– I’ll be inviting one person who uses my sketch, to join me for the next one! I’ll be also highlighting the entries that caught my eye, on my Facebook page.
– Every now and then, I will also invite an inky friend to join me as well, for an extra dose of inspiration.
