365 Cards - Super Sketchy WEEK!!

I quite enjoy working from card sketches.  I also quite enjoy seeing how many interpretations there are for a single sketch... it's inspiring, really.

Here are my submissions for Days 350-352 at 365 Cards:

 Day 350 was an amazing sketch from Wendi.  I opted to go 'landscape' with the card, and move the image more to the centre  (it was so small in comparison to the rest of the card, that it got lost in the bottom corner).


Image- Penny Black; Sentiment - Fiskars; Card Stock - Paper Source (Night); 
Design Papers - October Afternoon (Nightlight); 
Metallic Paper - from the ol' stashola (don't remember whose it was)

Day 351 - a luscious layered look from Gloria (seriously, does Gloria do anything that isn't luscious?  I think not!)  Here's my take...


Image - Penny Black; Card Stock - Bazzill Basics (black)
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye & The Paper Studio
Copics & Stickles & Dollar Store pearls

Day 352 Audrey's sketch is a classic.  Simple lines, with plenty of room left for interpretation.  I'm loving the result I got from this sketch - and I may just simplify more often!  I wanted the focal point of this card to be the incredible image  (first time I've inked this puppy up, and it won't be the last!).  I wish the picture showed the 'blinginess' of this card.  I Stickled the living daylights out of it....

This one will also be entered into Paper Cutz Challenge # 78 - Ladybugs, Bees or Butterflies


Image: Sweet Pea Stamps (ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art image... isn't she stunning?!!)
Design Paper - nameless in the stash; Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart
Copics & copious Stickles & dollar store rhinestones.

Well, if you made it down here, you've seen all there is to see... for today.  :)   You're welcome, of course, to keep browsing my other posts - and I always love to hear from you.  Leave a comment if you've got the time.

You sound like me - too much stash and old stuff but it's too good to throw away! Thank you for your kind comment on my card - I love Gerome! He has such a goofy look and certainly is worth stamping over and over. Keep stickling!
