Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #17



Not sure why but I had a bit of a hard time with this one. I had tons or retired or non SU stamps that would have worked but I wanted to be able to use it for my All Occasions Class tonight so I had to use current stamps. I think it is ok, it is cute and all but??? Any way the circle part is lined up in real life but no matter how many times I took the picture it looked like the blue was off center so I gave up and figured I will tell those of you who read my post that it is really not like that and the rest can just thing I meant it like that, lol.

Stamps: In the Stars and Nursery Necessities, Star Wheel
Paper: Blue Bayou, Sky Blue, Wild Wasabi, Real Red and Whisper White card stocks
Ink: Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi and Real Red
Other: Cuttle Bug, 3/4 inch circle punch, 1 and 1/4 inch circle punch, star faux brads and Nestabilities die.

We would love to have you play along with the challenge, first check out these great samples and the make your own. Don't forget to post a comment with your link and link back to the original challenge post so that we can all see your creations.

I have not had time to do your sketches lately but I have been printing them out and saving them. I finally had a chance to try this one. Here is a link if you want to see what I did with it. http://terrbear38.blogspot.com/2008/06/firecracker-designs-guest-designer.html
