Sketch Challenge Entry - "Anything Goes"

I love when I have an opportunity to create cards based on a specific sketch. My DT assignment for May was to use a Robert Jackson image of my choice with four individual tiles as a back-drop. As with every card I make, I begin with a color scheme that strikes my fancy, then add embellishments that compliment the image. Both the patterned paper and card stock are by DCWV, the ribbon by Martha Stewart, buttons by Basic Grey, and the adhesive chipboard sticker is from Studio112 (K&Company). The adorable image is entitled "Phoebe Fishing" and she was colored with Copic Markers. You can check out the beautiful cards by my DT members at Jackson's Digital Expressions.

It's the "Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge No. 158!"

As a stamper that loves to try new techniques and design sketches, I couldn't resist the invitation to make a card for the "Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge" hosted by Karen Giron at The Sweetest Thing. I found this sketch both user-friendly and fun. My card features the standard and scalloped, Circle Nestabilities, Basic Grey Patterned paper, glitter cardstock, stamped sentiment, and a decorative brad. Voila! My entry was completed in hardly anytime at all.

Love for Mo's Digital Pencil Images!

I have fallen (hard) for the cute, digital stamps designed by Mo Manning over at Mo's Digital Pencil. I love the whimsical flair added to each design, the multi-cultural selection, and high level of artistic ability. Needless to say, I (now) own several of Mo's images to use on various, future card projects. For my latest entry, I used "Kareem's Balloons" and had fun coloring this little fellow. As you can see, he has his hands full, but maintains complete control! LOL I can't wait to share more of my favorites from Mo's Digital Pencil in the coming weeks. Thanks for visiting. Ciao!
