Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #105

Written by: iwona    6 Comments

Hello & happy Saturday! Seems like a fitting day for a sketch, yes? Well I happen to have one and I’m breaking a record here for it’s the second horizontal layout in a row… what the heck is happening?? It’s a simple little thing that should appeal to many; I hope you’ll like it 🙂

Joining me today as Guests, are two of the most faithful and truly spectacular Sketchbook players, Jen Mitchell of I Create and Wanda Cullen of Cullen-ary Creations. I love it when they play along and I can’t wait to see what they prepared today! I hope you’ll pop in to check their cards as well 🙂

I took the inspiration for my card from the colours of the card below, which is the theme of Monday Mood Board #20 on the WPlus9 blog, and was made by Elise who is sadly leaving the WPlus9 Team…

And here’s what I made. I reached for an older but much loved set, Flora & Fauna. I adore the dogwoods and the cardinal; and these are one of few WPlus9 stamps which are good for colouring, which breaks the routine in the way I usually use the company’s stamps. At any rate, I’m not complaining 😀

I Copic coloured the bird, while the foliage was stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement ink and covered with glitter. I stamped once directly on the panel, and once on an extra piece of cardstock, from which I cut out the blooms. I affixed them with glue dots and curled the petals up a bit.
I like to stay faithful to the company if I play with their challenge, but I needed a nice big & bold sentiment so I reached for Papertrey Ink‘s Think Big Favorites #4.


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.

OUTSTANDING use of Wplus9 stamps, if I do say so myself! I’m glad you inked this CLASSIC and beautiful stamp set up….
