Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #1


Hello! Today is an exciting day, because it's the first day of the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge! Jen Shults is the owner and sketch designer and I'm so happy she asked me to join her team. I always loved her sketches when we were on the Club Anya & Friends DT together and am really happy she's keepin' the sketches going! Here's a look at our first sketch!

Our sponsor this week is the Wax Fruit Company. The Wax Fruit Company digis are illustrated by our very own Arielle Gordon. She has created an amazing array of versatile and fun digis that range for every single occasion. They are great if you love to color and also wonderful if you don’t…they looks stunning it just black and white. Arielle has very generously donated a $15.00 gift certificate to her store for the random winner of this week’s sketch challenge!

Here's my card using the Kindness Seed Packet digi...

I printed the digi out on Copic Xpress it Cardstock and colored it in with Copics. I did the thing I always swear not to do. I colored it before I had papers in mind, lol! I HATE it when I do that, because then I'm very limited on what I can do. Fortunately, this image works very well with natural colors like Kraft and brown, so that's what I went with...


I stamped a grungy stamp from Tim Holtz behind the seed packet and then added some lace and twine (and buttons!) A pretty simple card that really lets that image steal the show:)

Deconstructed Guidelines 
If you’d like to join us this week all you need to do is create a project using the above sketch as inspiration. There are no specific image requirements for this challenge. Upload your project to your blog or to an online gallery and link it back here to Inlinkz by Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 8 pm CST. Our sketch this week is sponsored by the Wax Fruit Company and one lucky randomly drawn winner will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the store.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you love our new sketch challenge and play along with us every Thursday!
