Creative Confetti: Let's throw up a sketch!

Hi folks! How's your week shaping up so far? Grand, I hope! I thought since it had been a while since we did a sketch, maybe it was time to cue up one to inspire some crafty endeavors this week!

Instead of recreating the wheel, I decided to pull up a card from my personal blog and use THAT as inspiration! To pick just one, I decided to go with the card I created closest to this date last year. And, that's where the inspiration sprouted for this week's sketch! So, after scrolling back, here's the sketch!

And here's the card that inspired it!

As you can see, I used Power Poppy's stamp set Poppies and colored it all up with Copic Markers. I love, love, love the red and purple color combo and that splash of yellow helps give that bit of visual punch! It will be fun to see what color combo you rock! Just a little note, I used the clear stamp set but there is a similar set you can download in a digital stamp set called Perfect Poppies. It is JUST as beautiful! Be sure to check it out! ;-) 

And here's a close up for you, so you can see those vibrant poppies! 

Now, for those of you who love a little extra bit of a challenge, check out Power Poppy's Sketch board over on Pinterest HERE. If you want "extra credit" and want to try a different sketch to upload for this challenge, head on over to that board and choose one! Just that simple! I noticed we need to get more in the habit of ushering in sketch challenges because that board has just shy of a dozen. It would be nice to build on this and have dozens to pick from! ;-) So, keep playing along and we'll add to that board every now and then.

Until then, let's see your take on one of these layouts! Feel free to flip it any which way you like as well. Just make sure you reference the original sketch so we can see how you interpreted it! Once you're done creating, don't forget to link up your card using the linky below so that we can see your handiwork and, at that point, you'll also be in the running for a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop too! So, as I love to say, get inspired then get those fingers inky!

Until next time!
