Sketches 33 - 37

It's that time again...time for more S&S sketches! I've found myself leaning towards more masculine type cards these days. Some are even brown as per Sandy's "request."

You'll find sketch 33 here. As usual these days, all of the papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from SU! I added a little more detail by piercing around the edge and connecting the dots with a black pen.

This is sketch 34. I used more of the same papers and a different sentiment from the same SU! set. This time I added detail with a Pearl Pen. I've been trying to use the entire sheet of paper once I cut into it. This prevents less scraps and I already have the mojo flowing for those papers.

For sketch 35, I used a cute stamp from Rubbernecker and a sentiment from one of the Hero Arts OWH sets. Look...browns! I added a bit of ribbon to hide where the papers meet. I colored the image with Copics and white embossed the sentiment.

Next on the list would be sketch 36. Did you notice more brown? All of the stamps are from Hero Arts OWH sets. I stamped the middle sentiment in black, then I used Memento London Fog for the others. I stamped it once then again to give it the progressively lighter look. There's a brad holding the clock hands on the clock.

The last sketch for this post is 37. The patterned papers I've had forever and just recently found in a drawer. They have metallic touches of copper and bronze on them that make them really pop. I believe they're from a 4X6 DCWV pack. The sentiment is SU! and there's a bit of Pearl Pen to help ground it.

That's it for this post. I hope you're all having a wonderful spring!


  1. I like you're take on all the sketches... great job! I like your thought on using up the whole paper while the mojo's flowing... brilliant!

  2. I have such a difficult time using browns, but your cards are wonderful! I also like how you use so many sketches.

  3. Thanks for the great inspiration. I have a hard time following sketches. You make it look easy.
