SDC29: Sketch

Any of you that follow my blog know what a love I have for sketches.  I use them frequently and when I don't, they are usually a starting point that I get carried away with.  So, when it was my turn to hostess, how could I not present with a sketch challenge?

This week, I give you a sketch.  This challenge is a STAMPOTIQUE only stamps week, so we encourage you to break out your Stampotique stamps and join our creative design team for your chance to add to your stamp collection with a prize of $30 gift certificate for stamps at Stampotique.  We will randomly pick a winner with the announcement of the next challenge.

With the last challenge of the month, we are bidding a few of our wonderful design team members adieu.  We wish them the best and always look forward to seeing their creations on their blog.  Thanks to each of you for being a part of the team and for sharing your love of Stampotique with others.  

We had a wonderful turnout for Jo's challenge to use newsprint or old book pages, this is what Jo had to say about the challenge and having to pick her top 3 favorites:

" What a challenge! So many entries! Thank you so much to everyone who took part and created such wonderful ideas. Some made me laugh out loud at the humour, others intrigued me and I love it when I open a blog and it makes me say 'I wish I'd thought of that!

My top three show three very different ways of incorporating book pages and newsprint in your work.

A stunning effect using the whole book

I loved the simplicity of this - it works so well. (Apologies for not leaving a comment as I'm not a member of Splitcoast)

This is so funny, made me really smile.

Our random winner from the SDC28 newsprint challenge is:
