Last night, I took a look at yesterday's color challenge and went down to my stamp room to get started. I stared at my stamps and the Real Red/Glorious Green/Night of Navy color combo, and my mind just wouldn't go there! That's when I thought, "Hey, maybe tomorrow's sketch challenge is already posted." And it was. Good thing :D
The sketch uses an offset, or tilted, oval as the focal point. I had fun with this one, and did two cards. Both use stamps from a set called Sea Life, which is one of three upcoming releases by H&M Stamps. The design team has been busy working on sneak peeks, and the response has been so enthusiastic that Heather (the owner and illustrator) has moved up the launch date to April 25! Check out all the sneak peeks HERE.
Here's another card for the sketch challenge:
Speaking of new releases, Verve Visual will be coming out with two new sets, also on April 25. You'll begin getting peeks of those on the 23rd. In the meantime, to "prime the pump," Julee has put together a "Vervalicious Challenge." It's open to anyone, and there's a prize! Go HERE for all the details and a peek at what Shannan cooked up with the inspiration piece. Each day for the next week and a half, another design team member will post another sample. Sure to be lots of fun! (And don't forget about the Honored Guest Sketch Challenge at Verve, where the winner gets to be guest designer for the month of June.)
