QKD Royal Wednesday Sketch Challenge Hop!!



Oh do I love me a sketch challenge!!! It's such a nice way to start out a project!!! Always great to have a jumping off point sometimes!!! You should have arrived here from Alex's blog and if not you can start hopping here!!

This week I chose to rotate the sketch so that I was working vertically rather than horizontally. I've been dying to ink up adorable Dino and Gweedo dinosaur set since I purchased it a while ago!! This was the perfect sketch for them!!

My card base and other solid color cardstock is SU! Bashful Blue, Really Rust and Apricot Appeal. I stamped Dino and Gweedo in basic black on the Really Rust paper. I then stamped them again on Basic Grey - Archaic paper and trimmed them out. I used 3-D foam squares to add them to the Really Rust images below. The double stamping adds nice dimension, I think.

I then stitched around both dinos to add some nice framing and used the Hello sentiment from the Sweet Memories Mini Stamp set. Super versatile!!!

I threw a few staples in for an added texture effect and lastly...I've had this Knight image (FOR MONTHS NOW) which is literally from a box of muffin mix...I think. Or something along those lines. I thought it was a cool image so I trimmed it out saving it for a rainy day (see definition of hoarding) hehehe... I covered him in Crackle Glaze and used him as a cool embellishment considering he matched just about perfectly!

I love how this turned out!!

Adorable images! Great idea to crackle the image cut from a box. We should do that as a challenge--find some packaging to include on a card.
