We are thrilled that so many of you leave comments about how much you are enjoying these. We are trying to make them fun but also somewhat challenging to help each of you (and certainly us, too) to grow in our stampin' abilities, styles and techniques. And besides all that - it's just plain FUN!!!!
This week we bring you another SKETCH challenge for the oh-so talented Maria. Maria cooked up this new sketch just for y'all and we truly hope you will use it this week. I just LOVE to see the hundreds of ways that girls interpret sketch challenges. :-) REMEMBER: every participant who posts a direct link to their project by the Thursday deadline is eligible to be considered as our TOP PICK stamper which we call "Chic of the Week". You get your own special blog badge, too! We plan to then select one gal from our Chic of the Week winners from each month to become a Guest Designer with Just Us Girls for a future month! SO - come out down and play with us! Show us what you've got!
Here's MY take on the sketch - ever since Dana's color challenge for Just Us Girls, which kicked me into a winter mode, I've been resisting going to winter.... BUT I really wanted to do a winter theme this week so I gave up and went with it LOL. This precious snowman (I LOVE snowmen) is an old, old CTMH I think. BUT he's super fun to color - used my copics. I modified the sketch to use an oval nestie instead of a circle cause I wanted lots of Mr. Snowman to show. Some simple sponging while the image was still in the nestie gave the soft, subtle "sky" BG.
Now - the double layers on Maria's sketch I chose to go with some "snow" hills using one of my EK punches. Each of the two "snow" layers is popped up on dimensionals and there is, of course, glitter on the mounds - I really wanted to use some white Flower Soft for the snow - but, alas, the stamp store is out. I kept the rest of the card simple - no ribbon *gasp* because of all the other elements I have on this. I'll be sure to send this card to one of my California friends in January LOL.
Be sure to hop over to the rest of the Just Us Girls team. Everyone has some fun takes on the sketch. Once you make YOUR card - be sure to go back to the Just Us Girls website and link up your project to Mr. Linky.
