411 Saturday challenge



Since kiddos are back in school, I made a challenge to myself to try to do 2 challenges per week, to keep mojo going. I prefer sketch challenges, as they are a great jumping off point.


Stamping 411, has great easy sketches and show a lot of beginner techniques on their site. I do admit, this week was a bit of a challenge.
I decided to go with the flow instead of thinking outside of the box. I chose to do a house and use a stamp set that has yet to see ink (yikes!). The stamp set is All in the Family. I even broke out my textured plates for my big shot, right down to polka dot background in sketch. It is tough to see on red background. I sponged my roof to get more details of checked background.

Cute card, Kathy! I admit, it was a bit of a challenge to get that triangle-shaped piece figured out! :D I don't usually use triangles only on one side of an image! :D
Thanks for coming to check out my card, too. :D Have a wonderful day - be blessed!
