WWC70 - Marsha's Sketch Challenge


This week is very exciting.  First of all we're adding a new Temporary Watercooler Artist for the next three months.  It's Penny Hanuszak, who has been linking up her wonderful cards frequently (and winning a number of our challenges).  Penny also participates regularly in our monthly Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop.

The other exciting thing this week is the challenge itself.  Marsha Reed is the hostess for a great sketch challenge.  I love sketches and this one is no exception.


As you know, you can change things about the sketch as long as it's still recognizably the sketch.  I chose to make a square card like the sketch this time but then I decided to flip the sketch over onto its side so that I could create the scene that came to mind with this sketch.


Doesn't that Sitting Here stamp set work out perfectly for this sketch?  And those pillows were just asking to replace the flowers in the sketch.

Stamp set:  Sitting Here
Papers:  Heavy Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, Whisper White, Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper
Inks:  Basic Black Archival, Smoky Slate, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Tangelo Twist
Tools:  Woodgrain embossing folder, Softly Falling embossing folder

I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the other Watercooler Artists at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I'm also adding this card to the [Pin]spirational Challenge this week as it's an "anything goes".

    1. Thank you, Libby. I love this stamp set and, since I have two cats, it was a given I'd pick the cat to be lounging on that swing. Of course the cat's colouring is the same as my daughter's cat rather than either of mine but that's our dirty little secret. No telling my felines, okay. :)

  3. Just had to drop by and give you some luv for this great card Heidi. I really like how you used that Specialty DSP for your panel and changed the sketch around to suit your card. Cats are such wonderful characters. I can just see my mom's sitting on the swing watching the birds.

    1. Thanks so much, Penny. I don't have one of these cool swings but I know what you mean about bird-watching. One of my cats loves sitting in the window, watching them and chattering at them. The other cat isn't very interested. They all have such different personalities. I love that Specialty DSP. I've used it for a few cards now and the sheet which is embossed with copper is especially stunning.
