I LOVE me a sketch....don't you?? Takes all the guesswork out of creating a card. For me, the creative process just seems to run so much smoother when I have a sketch to start things off!
This week the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge is a fantastic sketch from the one and only, TARA!! It's got lots of layers, which I love and the main panel is the perfect size for any of our stamps!!
I decided to use one of the new Cheryl Alger stamps from the July release, because I hadn't had a chance to ink her up yet! I used the adorable, Bookworm Jaime, which I happened to name after a little friend who happens to be almost as much of a bookworm as I am!! hehe.
With the sketch already out of the way, all I really had to do was choose the image and the papers! The patterned papers are from one of my many My Mind's Eye 6x6 pads and I coloured the image up with coordinating Copic markers. I used my oval Nesties to create the main panel, added lots of layers of papers, added some matching bakers twine and a corduroy button! Lastly, I added the fun sentiment that comes with Bookworm Jaime!!
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch challenge and you can hop on over to the challenge blog to check out more creations to inspire you by the lovely Krafty Girls! And don't forget that not only are our new July Stamps available, but we have this weekend's Frugal Friday specials available until tomorrow!
