It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge, and this week it's a sketch challenge ... an interesting one, too! Can't wait to see what you'll make of it. Lots of room for creativity! Here it is:
And some news, too ... Leigh O'Brien, who has been hosting the TCP Sketch Challenges for a long, long time, is taking a break for a little while. I wish her the best and will miss her unique sketches. They always get me thinking in new ways. Guess who is taking her place as sketch challenge hostess? Yours truly! Yep, that's right, once every five weeks, I'll don that coveted moniker "hostess with the mostess." How cool is that?! The four weeks in between will stay the same ... Jen for inspiration, Julie for technique/supply, Lori for color, and Susan for CutUps/stamps.
Leigh leaves some big shoes to fill, but fortunately, she's already got the next couple of sketches drawn up, so for a time or two (or three), I get the easy job of just showing up and drooling over all the gorgeous creations. I hope yours will be one of them.
For my sample, I decided to tackle that tall skinny panel by first turning it horizontal and then arranging a four-pack of postage stamps into a loose rectangle. The postage stamps were done with the new Commemorating You stamp set and the Stamp Trio CutUps die. Each stamp has a different birthday greeting. The funky flower at the bottom was done with TCP's new PomPom Flower CutUps die. I rolled it into only two layers, leaving a large hole in the middle, which I filled with a very generous helping of hot glue topped with a black button.
Have you see the postage challenge over at Moxie Fab World? I'm linking today's card -- you should play along too!
Thanks for stopping by!
