Daily Special - Sketch Challenge


Today's Daily Special is "Sketch Challenge". This sketch challenge require that you use an oval punch to create a window for your sentiment. Try it out!

I've decided that every card I post on this blog site will be accompanied by a sketch challenge. Each month, I'll compile all the sketch challenges and create a link with all the sketch challenges for the month. What do you think? Is this a good idea. I think so.

Word Window Punch by Stampin Up is a great way to showcase a sentiment. With this card, I punched a window using the punch, mounted my design with foam tape and behind it stamped a sentiment. As you can see the word "always" is showcased in a little window. Stampin Up Word Window Punch is a very versatile punch. There's a lot of creative things you can do with this punch. On the right of my blog site, scroll down to the "categories" section and click on Word Window Punch for other card ideas using this punch.

I colored the images using colored pencils. This is without using Gamsol. To create the background, I used the "Poppin' Pastel" technique. This technique is a great way to color in backgrounds using pastels rather than dye inks.

Click on "Poppin Pastels" under the "Categories" section to be linked to the tutorial of this particular technique.




Until later. . .
