Sketch #1 {Seize the Sketch}


Today is the day!!! We are so excited to launch Seize the Sketch. Although I am the creator of Seize the Sketch, I am just going to be designing for this challenge! The team will be sharing the sketch design duties, the posting duties and taking care of things behind the scenes! I feel so happy about this and I looking forward to "just" designing!!! Thank you, ladies. I am actually going to be slowing down on the challenge front...more on that later.


We are so thrilled to start this new challenge blog!  We hope that the sketches inspire you! Today, our very first sketch is designed by the sweet, Amy Tsuruta!!! 

Let's get started! Here's Amy's awesome sketch!




I just loved this sketch and went to work, using an adorable coffee set from our sponsor Fresh Squeezed Stamps. I stamped the image in Memento black ink and coloured it with Copics. Then I added a little Bazzill paper flower to the cup, for dimension. The image is then layered onto a piece of Pool Party Paper and then affixed to a tag from Michael's. The paper is from Simple Stories.

The team has created such awesome samples to get you in the crafting mood! Come on and play along with my sketch this week! Remember ALL product is welcome!

My colour inspiration comes from the Curtain Colour Inspiration Challenge and I am linking this to the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
