iSpy Sketch Challenge #37

Yay!! Another week of inspiration from iSpy Sketches!! Fall is now in full swing here on the West Coast...It almost seems like a shock to the system but it's nice to be getting out warmer clothes and being able to justify those yummy hot Starbucks drinks. LOL!!!
This week's sketch is by Jean Cross (naturecoastcrafter at SCS) and is inspired by this card.


 

I tried out a technique that I saw Teri do on the Technique Tuesday blog. I didn’t quite do the “ombre” thing, but this background was created in a similar way: I scribbled a couple of different colours of watercolour crayons on a clear block, misted it with water, then smooshed it onto the cardstock. It served as a pretty base for my glittery clouds.
I stamped the sentiment (Bright Idea by Technique Tuesday) in black and drew a box around it, kinda like the inspiration card.

Here is how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC37), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below.
  • Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.
  • A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12:01 AM EST, and you have until noon on the following Friday EST to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.
  • We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Winners" post every Sunday where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!
  • Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)
  • Have fun and we look forward to "spying" your creations!

  2. Tobi, I am so glad I stopped by to thank you for your wonderful card based on "my" aketch. I am so glad I did. I love what you did with the watercolor crayons to create that background. Gotta try that! Thank you.
