OCC Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Hello! I'm here today with a new sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner. Sugar Creek Hollow is sponsoring the challenge this weekend and has graciously offered the DT the use of one of their digital stamps. Sugar Creek Hollow is a new digital stamp company and their grand opening is March 1st. They are a Christian company that is giving all of their proceeds to a food pantry. They are offering $10 in free digital images to the lucky winner of this week's random selection.

As you can see by my card above, I chose an image called Heart Filigree. I colored in the heart with a red marker. Once your image comes out of your printer, make sure it is dry before you start coloring or the black ink will bleed into your marker. Not pretty!
The sketch today used a ticket punch on the corners. I don't have a ticket punch, so I used a 1/2" circle punch to do the job. You just slide your corner in the punch until the corner is in the center of the circle, then punch! Voila! Who needs a ticket punch?

I hope you get a chance to participate this week! Head on over to Our Creative Corner and see the other digital images the DT used on their projects.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Wow, wow, wow!! I love how you used this image, Dana! The red and black on that kraft colored DP looks fabulous and I love the red and black pearls. Wonderful job - thanks for using a SCH image this week with your sample.

Thanks for sharing that great circle punch tip too!

Wow! Joycelyn said exactly what I was going to say! That doesn't happen very often! I like that you used the 1/2" circle punch because it made the cut a little bigger and I like that. I love the red rhinestones that you added too!

Love this, Dana! Great way to show how to improvise when you don't have a ticket punch or want a deeper indent!
