This is the sketch challenge on Stampers Quest for January. Go over and see the designs by the other artistic guides at StampersQuest it is always amazing to see the other creations that are made from exactly the same starting point.
Like I've said I find sketches a challenge - but I think it's about going through my supplies and finding just the right stamps - which is not always that easy if you don't have a huge variety. Then it's looking at parts of bigger stamps and also smaller stamps which go together. I'm working on next months now and hope to have some successes...
For this sketch I decided I had to get out my new cuttlebug and give some embossing a go - I'm still learning what I can do with this thing and having fun. All of the colour was added by sponging. The little robot heads are from the robots vol 2 by Darkroom door - I am loving these sets at the moment and these robots are the cutest. I left an actual sentiment off this one so it could be used for birthday, congratulations or even a thank you.
Here is the first card I made for the Stampers Quest January issue focussing on Masking. It is my beginner level card - go to Stampers Quest to see how I made it.
All stamps are fromRubbadubbadoo. I recommend you go and have a look at their catalogue - with the NZ dollar, as it is, at the moment it's much more economical to "buy New Zealand made" no matter where you are.
