I am here for you....anytime!


I found this new sketch challenge blog called Retro Sketches. I love sketches and constantly look for sketches for my card layout. So I was happy to find another sketch challenge blog :) The more the merrier.
Here is the retro sketch #1


What I did with this sketch was to turn it anticlockwise and made it vertical. And to make my card, I used CR84FN49 challenge colours.


Here is my take on both the challenges :)

IMGP2720

I love combining different stamps and more if they er from different companies. On this card, I have combined stamps from Hero Arts, Uniko Studio and Wplus9. I was so happy when the clock from Uniko Studio and the sentiment from Hero Arts matched and was thrilled when the stamp from Wplus9 completed the sentiment :)

Supplies:
Cardstock: Lemon Tart, Stampers Select White from PTI, Basic Gray from SU
Stamp sets: Zig Zag and Cuckoo from Hero Arts. Time and Extra Time from Uniko Studio, Love You More from Wplus9.
Ink: Summer Sun and Cake Crumb from SU. Stazon Black Ink, Smokey Shadow from PTI
Accessories: Craft Concept's Hexagon Illusion embossing folder, circle punch from SU, rhinestones from Kaisercraft.

We are having a long weekend. So tomorrow is also a holiday (labour day). 
You know what that means? More time to craft :)
 
Ok! got to go now and make dinner (it is evening for me in Australia)
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
