SFYTT - Baby cards using a sketch

I've been wanting to try some sketches for a while, and this sketch from i{heart}2stamp appealed to me:


SFYTT means "sketch for you to try!"  Since I'm also trying to use my stash, I dug deep into my older papers and found these fabulous pastels from Club Scrap along with the Oh Baby! stamps.  I made two different cards using similar colors (once they're out on your desk, it is sooo easy to make two cards rather than one!).

The dots around the "hello baby" saying from Stampin' Up! are by viva decor - it's a dimensional paint.  Great stuff.

The second card is very similar, just a different image for the focal point.

Both images were colored with colored pencils, and then blended with low odor thinners (for oil paints, but heck, it works here!).

It was fun to make these cards and I look forward to doing some more challenges.  When you don't have a great idea for a card, these are great ways to kick-start your creativity!  On top of that, you get to see a lot of different ways of interpreting the sketch.  I'm going to have fun looking at what everybody else did.

  2. I like the one with the elephant better, just because I am kind of partial to elephants. I haven't been able to stamp at all this weekend because of those lovely taxes!

  6. Great job...I love those images of the animals. You are so good to use up your stash. I have so much stash and can't seem to quit getting more. I just need to use it. Thanks for stopping by at my blog! I do like making two cards when I can. Seems like when I make one, I wish had another one for later.
