Two challenge cards!


I love doing sketch challenges! I wish I knew where to find more inspirations like these.

Anyway...this first one is for Beate's Weekly Sketch challenges. She's been doing this for 50 weekends. OMWord! I just love doing
hers because they have such great elements of design in them.

I used my Verve stamps again and I used (for the first time) the Versamark ink to make the little background on my blue paper. Eee! How fantastic is this stuff? (Sorry, I'm a brand-new stamper so this stuff THRILLS me. LOL!)

This second one here is for Taylor's Cupcake challenge. Hers are always fantastic, too and almost always have a cool little zippy thing that makes them over the top with coolness.

On this one, I used my Copics again! I've got tons and tons of practicing to do. LOL! And I used my shimmery white paper which I don't think I had ever used before now. Too cool! You can't see it in the photo but weew is it sparkley! :D

(Oh and can you tell that these colors were already out on my table so I just used them again and again until I was left with just itty bitty scraps of nothingness? LOL!)

Anyway, thanks for stopping by to check on me today. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
