Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge


Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*.  Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

This week we were given our sketch by the very mean Hannah! If I am your first stop on todays hop you will be wondering what I am talking about so let me show you!

Here is this week's sketch:

Yes that is pretty much a blank canvas! My first thought was "oh good, I can just leave my card blank and ask everyone to use their imagination to envisage a card". Instead I took this weeks sketch to heart and used my imagination to come up with a simple card that I am actually really happy with and think sticks close to the simplicity of the sketch!

Here is my take on the sketch:

I wanted to keep my card as flat as possible, with very little extra dimension. I wanted to stay close to the sketch but still wanted to add interest and texture. 

I used the excuse to get out my aqua painters and opened a new pack of shimmery white cardstock. I love it! it's great for watercoloring on and it has this lovely glitter to it which you can just make out in the photo below.

I used the lovely Timeless Texture stamps to add dimension on the card along with a stripe line from the You're So Lovely stamp set which matches one of the kits in the Spring Summer catalogue and has fast become one of my favourite stamp sets! I haven't even made the kit yet and I have been using it for so many other things! I finished it off with a birthday sentiment from Birthday Blooms and some sequins and candy dots because I couldn't resist a little bit of 3D!

I cannot wait to see what all the other talented ladies have created with this week's sketch! I am sure there is going to be a lot of inspiration to be taken from this weeks hop! There is nothing like a challenge to bring the best out of everyone!
