SDC60: Sketch


Hi, it's Kim here and today is my turn to host our next challenge at Stampotique Designer's Challenge. Anyone that follows my blog knows that I'm a big fan of sketches.  Even if you don't follow the EXACT sketch, it's a great jump start for your mojo and sketches are some of my favorite challenges to participate in.


This week I have created this sketch and we have lots of inspiration from the design team to share over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge.  Please remember we are now doing weekly challenges so you will have until Tuesday, 8/14 to link up below using Inlinkz and play along for your chance to win.  All winners from the challenges from the month will have a chance to win, we will randomly draw 2 winners for a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.


I decided to go with a splatter background instead of the honeycomb, just thought it would give a more bold look.  I love this bee and stamped it once on my cardstock and again on vellum cardstock so I could pop the wings up a bit.  Finished off with ribbon and a simple statement.

This is gorgeous Kim, love the vellum wings. I'm gonna confess I'm not a massive sketch fan, BUT I actually quite like what I did with it (which is a rarity for me), so I'm going to give your sketch the thumbs up :D You never know, you may have converted me!!!
