snb sketch #4 card

Have you visited the stretch n bubbles sketch challenge blog? They have just the right kind of sketches for my style...I'm really itching to make up a bunch of inchies and try sketch #1...but I haven't yet...

Today they posted sketch #4...and I had fun with one of stretch n bubbles digital stamps and put together a birthday card...don't we always need more birthday cards?

The digital stamp is available at stretch n bubbles, I colored it in with some pencils, the pp is basic grey and the shiny paper is from an origami pack. I also used some chalks and ink for the edges.

Thanks for looking!

Goin' Buggy!

I certainly enjoy cardmaking, and last fall I discovered a place on the web that invites others of a similar mind to share and encourage eachother...Cardmaker magazine's swap forum. If you've never visited, I recommend you click on in and join in the fun!

I have participated in several swaps, and these latest creations are for one that has a theme of bugs...

This first card uses a new to me ink for the dragonfly, it is called Opalite by Tsukineko, and if you use it on a dark paper, it is fabulous! If you have a chance to get!

Here is a closer shot of the dragonfly, I pop-dotted it above the leaves for some dimension.

The second card is far brighter than I normally make...and I like it! I think that it really shouts SUMMER!
