Feeling sketchy yet??

Happy Hump day ya'll!! Adina here with a new challenge over at Inky Impressions...

This week, the Inkettes are playing along with a sketch, which, I must admit, is one of my favorite kinds of challenges... I LOVE coloring in my stamps and picking papers to play with, but I'm often stuck there, or I repeat the same kind of design element thereafter. Sketches help me to shake it up a little and although I can add my own flair, it does help to have a puzzle picture to refer to! :)
The sketch above was interpreted using the Open Drawer Desk from Inky Impressions, which was colored in with copics.

I used browns for the desk (E07, E09, E13, E17) and then colored in using a variety of colors through out (predominantly BG0000, BG10, BG13, and BG15). Throw in a doily, some buttons, and some OOLLLDDD papers, AND some Gesso on kraft cardstock using a stencil, and viola... A crafty card. :)

So head on over to Inky Impressions' challenge blog so you can check out the sketch action from the rest of the Inkettes, then come play along!

I will also be submitting this card to the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps (Make your Mark)
Word Art Wednesdays (Anything Goes)
Cuttin and Stampin (Anything Goes with a Writing Instrument ... the markers on the desk!)

  2. Like the desk image card. Like how you colored it. Like the use of the doily, faux stitching & tile pieces for sentiment. Wish my desk looked this nice & organized. Thank you for entering Cuttin' & Stampin' Anything Goes with Writing challenge.
