Sketch Something

This week on Stamp Something the challenge is to Sketch Something! There is a great sketch to work with, so I hope you'll play along! I liked the sketch so much that I made two cards. The first card I will show you today uses a great image from Dog Gone Stamps - the sponsor this week for the Stamp Something Challenge. The other card I created uses one of my favorite retiring SU! stamp sets...and you'll have to stop back by tomorrow to see that one. ;-)

Don't you just love this giraffe!? I was super excited when I saw that this was the image I got to work with this week! It was a little bit of a challenge however to fit this long, rectangular image into the square space as shown in the sketch. I had to cut some of the poor guys long neck off to make it work. He was super fun to color. I stamped him in Basic Brown and used SU! Classic inks and my aqua painter. When I was finished coloring I used my Linen Background stamp (retired) inked in Creamy Caramel to add a little texture. The DSP's I used are retired papers from the Haiku & Frosty Days packs. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink to age them.

I used Antique Gold HPH along with Chocolate Chip grosgrain. I tied hemp cord and more Chocolate Chip grosgrain onto the hardware and frayed it for a different, more rustic texture.

Now it's your turn...so go Sketch Something!
