So Many Sketches

Yesterday, I was looking for a bit of inspiration so I turned to some sketch challenges.  I really like them since I don't really have a lot of special tools, specific stamp sets, or colors to do other challenges.  BUT I have paper, so I can do a sketch challenge.

This first one on the left is one I found after looking at Cindy Haffner's blog.  It is a sketch challenge for Jacksonbelle Embellishments.   I got this image in a swap and I just love it.  I found out through a comment on SCS that it is Inkadinkadoo.  Super cute!

Stamps: Inkadinkado
Paper: green, white CS, Making Memories Aqua polka dot scarf DP
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: markers, ribbon, rhinestones, staples

This next card is for the SCS weekly sketch challenge.  I also got this image in a swap and no one has told me what it is yet, so it's still a mystery.  I really like this sketch because it gives you a lot of room to work with.  I think most sketches tend to keep the images on the small side so it's a big harder for those big stamped images to shine.  This giraffe was stamped in black but I went through with my markers and colored the spots brown and the eyes back.  Then of course I filled in the yellow.

Paper: white, yellow, brown cs
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: markers, brads, ribbon

Don't forget about my giveaway, it ends on Saturday!  Win, win, win HERE.
