this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

the other reason i really like this card is because yellow/gold, grey and black create one of my favorite color combos. i think it's timeless and classic and i just love it. this is definitely slightly different than any of the other cards i've made this round of the project, but as i mentioned, i like the way it turned out.

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play and because i'm only *slightly* obsessed with rainbows and all things colorful, i decided to make a small set of cards. each one has the same overall design, as well as the same sentiment. however, each one features a different color patterned paper with diagonal tone-on-tone stripes.

one thing that i love about sketches is the freedom of interpretation. i liked the layout of this design, but decided to flip the narrow [pink] strip 90 degrees so that it would be horizontal. i also eliminated the small scattered circles, ideally gems or sequins. ordinarily i would've kept them but i decided the patterns i selected to use had enough shine and bling!

today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.
