Sketch 105

Here's the next OWH Sketch. They're up to 105 now! After you're done here, go check out all of the great cards using this sketch.

For some reason, this struck me as perfect for masculine cards. Maybe it's because I've been looking for a way to use these fish stickers.

Here's a close up of my favorite one:

The middle fish is all shiny and all of the fish on the cards has some dimension to them, as well as having that glassy eye look. They are from K & Co. The two red strips are Graphic 45 paper. The rest of the paper is all from my stash. I could tell how old my green plaid strip paper was when I turned it over for info and all it said was "Green Pld .59" lol. I debossed with my Swiss Dots folder and added a bit of brown to help the fish cirlce pop.

The actual sketch:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Nice job! These are great masculine cards!

  2. I love manly fish cards! Just did a few myself. TFS!!!

  3. Love these, Cherie! The fish are great and I love how you trimmed the bottom of your vertical panel. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  4. Perfect manly cards. Love the colors. I always struggle with masculine cards since I love adding pink or some pretty ribbon.

  5. these are great masculine cards - isn't it nice to see how easily you can make a number of cards with some of the same supplies.

    thanks for supporting OWH

  6. OH! You're right, these are great masculine cards! Great paper choices to go with the fish!

  7. Great group of masculine cards Cherie! The pattern you used for the three stripe work perfectly together and I love the texture you added to the ovals. Terrific work!

  8. These are all such great cards! I love all those fish and the angle of the strips too! NJ!
