So, as a means of finding a starting point, I'm going to give you a challenge. Every Thursday during October I will post a sketch challenge. You can interpret it any way you like and can use any materials unless I specify a colour or subject theme.
Once you've created your card, email me a picture (or call me and I'll come photograph it for you if you're nearby) and I'll post it here. I must receive your entry by midnight on 13 October. You can then all vote for your favourite by sending me an email and the winner will get a little something nice for their efforts.
You don't have to do all the challenges, but if you do, I will give you a coupon for free shipping on your next SU order!
So without further ado, here's the sketch for today:
And here's my sample
Stamp Set - Playful Pieces (Hostess) and Short & Sweet
Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Choc Chip
Paper - Jolly Holiday DSP
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Choc Chip & So Saffron
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Technique on tree - Kissing.
Good luck. And remember that there's no right or wrong. Just have fun!
