Let's Fly Away


When I saw Leigh O'Brien's Sketch for TCP Tuesday, I knew I had to try it. I've never seen a Sketch like this before, so I knew it would be challenging.

And that is the reason behind TCP Tuesdays, to challenge yourself to use color combos you haven't used before. To use a technique or supply that you've only read about and to pull out your stamps and actually ink them up.

So here is my card for the sketch challenge. The bunny and sentiment are from our Take Off set and paper by Pink Paislee and Making Memories and Pebbles. I cut the Cloud Border CutUps down and folded the notched banner from the Easy Rosette CutUps die over for the flags.

And I don't know how it happened, but I actually used 6 different patterned papers in this card. I think they all work. Go figure. ;)

I tweaked the sketch a bit. (Yes, you can do that) And Carole did, too. In fact, she didn't use flags at all, but butterflies, and boy is her card cute. She uses Flutter By and our Mini Exotic Butterfly CutUps.

And if you are gearing up for Halloween, Jen created an AWESOME (yes, I'm singing) card using our MWAH! set.

So what are you waiting for? Go STAMP. You know you want to!

Alma,
This is darling. I love the houses in the background. Too cute. I've really enjoyed playing along with the challenges for the last few weeks. Can't wait to have a moment to play with my TCP images for this challenge this weekend.
