Here's another card I made using a sketch, this time from Pals Paper Arts. As always my card doesn't exactly fit the sketch but that's OK since I just use the sketches to get the spark of creativity going. I used all Amy Tan stuff and love how it turned out. I inked the edges with hot pink Colorbox chalk ink. Here is the link to the sketch.

This is a card I made the other day after being inspired by last week's Mojo Monday (MOJO259) card sketch. I think I'm going to try and do these more. Sometimes I need a little help getting started with a project and a sketch is one thing that always seems to help me get creating.

When I saw this sketch I immediately thought of the sun. So I turned the sketch around and went from there. I hand cut all the shapes on this card. It was like I was in kindergarten again--just having fun, not worrying if everything was straight or perfect. And I love how the card turned out...

My husband gave me the idea of using my white Sharpie pen to make the sun's rays. (One of the benefits of having an artist for a husband is you always have someone you can ask for help on a project if you get stuck. And you know his advice is always good, even if you don't always take it.)

The majority of the supplies used for this card are from Studio Calico ("Abroad" line) and Amy Tan ("Sketchbook"). Yellow is my favorite color so this card makes me super happy. Definitely bright and sunshiny.
