Happy June everyone! Today is Sketchy Thursday and I thought it would be fun this week to create a card sketch with Graduations and Father's Day just around the corner. I created a sketch and wanted to demonstrate how you can take just one sketch and "stretch it". Sketches are such a great way to get ideas flowing, but I never follow them down to the last detail. I really love to take the idea of the design and run with it and often times can create several, very different cards, from that one sketch.
Using Rocket Age again, she demonstrated a totally different twist on the sketch in her "Happy good ol' 4th" card. She added buttons to emphasize the sentiment, strips of journal stickers and a button to add focal to the left side and strips of ribbon to give a firework feel to the block of pp, loooove.
Rocket Age for a baby card, seriously?? There isn't anything she can't do. Check out her amazing "Precious Baby" card. That IS Rocket Age. Amazing right?? Love that she has used block of pp, the cutest banners and THAT sweetest bear charm.
And here are some cards I created, inspired by this one sketch. I love summer, really, really love it because all my babes are home and we love to do things together, so I was inspired to think of all the things we will soon be doing together when creating these cards.
We love to go to the lake and play all day during the summer. We build sand/rock castles, we kayak, we swim and yes, just enjoy the water, sun and air. In my "Beach" card, I used the little fish and duck from Schoolhouse, chipboard from 5 & Dime and papers and embellies from Seaside.
And lastly, I created a "Baby" card using Ducks in a Row, one of my top 20 lines of OA (because I really can't choose). I needed a baby card this week for a dear friend and decided to use the sketch to create one for her.
I hope you all enjoy this sketch as much as we have! As always, don't forget to share how far you "Stretch the Sketch" with us at our Flickr Gallery.
