I've heard lots of people say that they love sketch challenges because the creative process is so much easier. I've never done a sketch challenge before so I didn't know. I have to admit that some of the thinking has been done for you. When I started on this sketch I wasn't sure I was going to like it but once I picked my paper, it sort of created itself. I stamped the Tim Holtz stamp on white card stock, cut it out with the Spellbinder Labels 10 die, inked the edges with Distress Ink Scattered Straw and popped Tilda with Pony Tail on top. One thing I did that I've never done before was to cut the border die twice, once from each designer paper, making sure I had a left end and a right end from different papers. I measured, cut them and glued them together into one strip. For the 3 elements at the bottom I used some new I-Rock hearts. The sentiment is from PaperTrey. I'm pleased with this first attempt at a sketch. If you've never done a sketch before, hurry over to the Magnolia Stamp Lover's blog and check this one out.
