UDI Sketch Challenge 264

Happy Saturday! It's time for another sketch challenge on the UDI blog. This will be the last one until the new year. We'll be taking a break to spend more time with family this holiday season. I'll still be posting, so come back and visit! :) 

Here is today's sketch.

Here is the card I created.






















The image is retired, but it's the first time it's seen ink.  So sad.  I absolutely love this!  I tried my hand at water coloring with an aquapainter for the first time, too.  I have no idea what I was waiting for all this time.  :)

This card will be going to a friend's daughter who had her first baby.  The finished size is 5x5.  All the edges except the watercolor paper have been sponged.  The largest panel was adhered to the base with dimensionals.  I just had to add some bling on the portholes.  I used Smoky Slate to create the shadow around the image.

UDI Sketch Challenge 262

Happy Saturday! It's time for a new sketch challenge on the UDI blog!















Here's what I created!




















Isn't it fun?  :)  I turned the sketch on its side and used a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge in place of the ribbon.  I used more stamps from Gorgeous Grunge to fill the background layer.  The sentiment is from Christmas Messages, was punched with the Label Bracket punch and adhered with dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone jewel for bling.   All the card stock edges were sponged in Real Red or Old Olive.

See what the rest of the team created by clicking over to the UDI blog.

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Christmas Messages, Gorgeous Grunge.  Ink- Soft Suede, Real Red, Old Olive.  Paper- Sahara Sand.  Accessories- Label Bracket punch, Rhinestone jewel, sponge dauber, dimensionals.

UDI Sketch Challenge 261

Happy Saturday! Here is my card for today's UDI Sketch Challenge!


























I used MDS to create this birthday card for my BFF's son.  He is turning 13, and today is his Bar Mitzvah.  He is a baseball player/fan, so I thought the baseball in Great Sport would be perfect.

You can see the sketch and the other designers' creations here on the UDI blog.

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- none.  Ink- none.  Paper- Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black.  Accessories- MDS, Neutrals brad colored with a red sharpie.
