Sketch Time

Good morning

At Less is More this week we're back with one or our less regular challenges.  This week we have a sketch for you.  So, lets get to it, here it is...



Please ensure your creations are CAS, full guidelines can be found over at the challenge blog here.



I have three cards to share today, here's the first...



A super simple one layer card.  I stamped the holly bough in black ink off the edge of the card and coloured it in with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  The sentiment was stamped below, also in black.  I was going to add some bling but I felt as the stamp was very detailed it looked best left alone.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Lili of the Valley - Holly Bough; Happy Little Stampers - Mixed Christmas Sentiments
  • Ink: Archival - Jet Black; Versa Color - Onyx Black
  • Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens


Challenge entries:

Brown Sugar Challenge - Challenge #169 - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Challenge #332 - Anything Goes


Card two...



I stamped and die cut the sofa using a co-ordinating stamp and die.  On a panel of white cardstock I stamped the oval shape (actually a speech bubble stamp)  to represent a rug and adhered the sofa on top popped up on 3D foam.  The sentiment was stamped below in black.  I ran the card base through my Big Shot with a striped embossing folder and adhered the panel on top.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Time to Relax (and matching die); Paper Smooches - Shadows
  • Ink: Versa Color - Celadon, Orchid; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up

Challenge entries:


Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #396 - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Challenge #146 - Anything Goes



And finally...




For this one I rotated the sketch 90 degrees.  Another simple one layer card created like the holly bough but this time I coloured the flower with Zigs and water to give a softer effect.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Fresh Flowers
  • Ink: Archival - Jet Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens


I find sketch challenges the most difficult so I can't wait to get inspired by what you create for this week's challenge.  

Thanks so much for popping by.  I've got a busy weekend so won't have much time for crafting but I will be back late tomorrow with an exciting post for you ;)

  13. Oh clever idea about the speech bubble stamp for the sofa card and the embossing really complements the card. Love the contemporary feel of the Christmas card and the sentiment choice is perfect. Another clever idea to rotate the sketch for the third card and so beautifully coloured x
