GCA #57 - A Simple Sketch

Hello all!! I hope all of you are enjoying a fabulous day where you are and the extended weekend! Here in my part of Jackson we having a blessedly beautiful sunny day, with just the perfect temps!!

For the GCA this week, we are focusing on a sketch. As you know I love to do sketch challenges and thought we haven't done one here in awhile. I two samples to show you the sketch, as I do not have a blank copy! I'm hoping once my new laptop arrives, with Adobe Photoshop, I can create blank sketches!!

The first sample uses dsp as the background panel, but you can use anything you like, or leave it off. The important parts of the sketch are the vertical panel, diamond piece, some type of embellie on the right and some type over on the left.

I created these cards awhile ago and I apologize if you've already seen them. The first uses the Wanted set with the Boho West dsp. I still have some of that and miss it! My colors I used on here are Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla.

The second sample uses the Polka Dots & Paisleys set, now retired. As you can see on this card I used a piece of cardstock for the larger BG panel which was stamped in Linen onto Bayou Blue in the same ink. The remaining colors I used were River Rock, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I also used Blue Bayou dsp.

On both of these cards I raised the diamond panel up with dimensionals.

So, the challenge this week is to make a card, project or scrapbook page with the sketch above, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by September 12, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random drawing and post the next Sunday.

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! If you upload your card on SCS, Stampin' Addicts or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA57(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 57) in the keyword section.That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!!!

Happy Stamping!!!
