Sketch Sunday: May 6, 2012

Here is the card sketch for today, May 6, 2012. I didn't notice it when I drew it, but it kind of makes me think of the old west with its color scheme! What do YOU think of when you look at it? What does it inspire YOU to create? Please feel free to share what you create by emailing a photo of it to and I will add it to this post!

First up we have a beautiful card by Jane Larsson. Jane used the "West Train" stamp by Frantic Stamper and Aladine's Doily Eiffel Tower Stamp, along with some Little Yellow Bicycle paper and Anna Griffin die-cut flowers to create this gorgeous work.

Next we would like to share Jennifer Larsson's lovely card. She, too, used an Eiffel tower, but hers is by Frantic Stamper, Lg Eiffel Tower! She also used the following Frantic Stamper cling mounted stamps:Hand/Clock, Enough of Paris, Rue de Chaillot Postmark, and Visa Stamp.

And then we have a fabulous card from Linda Phinney! Linda used the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp French Newspaper Background on blue paper and then die-cut her stars (and hand cut a strip) to create this wonderful take on the sketch. Notice that she moved a few elements, but that they are all still there. That is the beauty of a sketch; it is a starting point but not necessarily the whole story!

Thanks for coming by. We look forward to hearing from you!
