This week, the oh-so-talented designers at Unscripted Sketches are celebrating their 4-Year-Blog-iversary, and have offered up a plethora (love that word!) of games for us to join as part of their festivities. I'm playing with
Game 1: commenting on their blog to share how long I've been a follower and what I love about their site. I found them only recently, perhaps two months ago (apparently that's when I emerged from under the rock!!) and was immediately smitten! What's to love? Ummm....everything! Sketches, comments from the designers, such a variety of projects shared...yes, they have cultivated a welcoming, warm site, attracting people with talent to share and personalities that shine! Any community that embraces a new-comer like me, is a community with 'heart' (and patience!!).
Game 2: creating. Use this week's sketch, and submit to your heart's content, with each entry counting as a win opportunity - how cool is that! Despite the temptation to dive right in and create card upon card - because the sketch is just that great! - my muse reigned me in. Net result: one post and a set of four little 'somethings'....
Just when you may be thinking (hoping!) that I've 'moved on' from the Doodle Frames I've been obsessing over since their arrival in my collection, here I am, with yet another from the set (and be aware: there's still one more yet to be inked...), along with more blossoms from Petal Pushers and Flap Happy butterflies. The colours from The Paper Players #141 challenge served as my palette.
My project: I pulled out my 3X3 card matching envelope dies to create...are you ready...a set of Thank you cards/envelopes that can be used alone, or together, depending. I tried to replicate the Unscripted Sketch with the frame + butterfly combination on the envelopes, and flowers on the card. Each of the sets features two of the Paper Player colours; hopefully, they're close (especially the 'tried to replicate crumb cake butterfly and leaves, with the respective frame and flower).
Enough 'splaining'...here are the challenges, followed by my entries....
First, the 'island indigo and baja breeze' set:
now the 'rich razzleberry and crumb cake' set (I'm suddenly starving!)
and the 'matchy matchies' together...
Happy 4-Year Blog-iversary to Unscripted Sketches!
Thank you for the sketch inspiration and to The Paper Players - love the colours!
Hope my little project does justice to both your challenges!
Thanks for dropping by, and please know that your comments are welcome and appreciated, deeply.
I'm so honoured - my little set was selected as a winner!! http://unscriptedsketches.com/2013/04/unscripted-sketches-207/
