Wednesday is Sketch Challenge day!

I really like the sketch challenges on SCS because it makes things so easy. Especially when I'm smart and combine it with the color challenge!! (maybe tomorrow I can make a card combining the limited supply challenge with the previous 3...that would be impressive ...hhhmmmm... guess what I'll be doing tomorow morning!!)

This week's sketch is a nice simple one, so I thought it would be perfect for some kids cards. I need some cards to send to some of Julia's friends back in California, and since her nickname is Bug, I thought this would work!

Totally quick and easy card (when you don't have a whiny 4-year-old with a slight fever preventing her from going to school but with more energy than PG&E demanding attention!) I got the colors for this card from the SU! color wheel, and thought the nice bright colors were perfect. I pulled out my Love Bug stamp set and had at it. Colors used are Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise and Rose Red (the dragonfly is Pink Passion). I used some grosgrain and organdy again for the ribbon accent, and clipped the corners for some brads on the focal image. Lastly, I added googly eyes...because every kid card needs googly eyes, right?

Ok...that's all the posts for today. (or, if you're starting at the top like a normal person, this is the first, you've got 3 more to go!!)



  1. Hi Jana... Thanks for the comment on my blog. The painting is done on specially coated card using wax that is applied with an iron and or stylus. It's great fun and not as difficult as it looks. You should give it a go...
