iSSC02 - Cute as a Button

Hey, all you sketch-a-holics out there!  Did you hear about the newest weekly sketch challenge on the block called iSpy Sketches?!  And you hear that I am on the DT?!  Yep.  Moi!  I was personally invited by Kim Teasdale to be part of this.  Yep.  Kim Teasdale!  She has reemerged into this wacky paper crafting world with her own sketch challenge!  I cannot believe I am part of this crazy talented DT that she has put together to kick this whole thing off!  If you missed the announcement of the DT, you can find it HERE.  If you missed our first challenge, you can find that HERE.  Now on to week two!

This week we are featuring this completely adorable card by Beate Johns (Beate at SCS) called Sweet li'l Sheep that was posted last year on March 24th.

If you haven't had a chance, please pop by Beate's gallery and or her blog to congratulate her on her feature and to check out her amazing creations :) Thank you so much Beate for inspiring us this week!  

Now, here's the sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch:

I must confess.....I cringed when I saw this sketch.  Triangle?!  Ick.  However, I actually really like the way my card turned out!  I started with a PTI kraft CS base and sponged some A Muse Studios french roast ink around the edges.  I used DSP from the Jillibean Soup 6 Bean Homemade Soup 6x6 paper pad as well as PTI dark chocolate and vinatge cream CS.  I added some faux stitching, some PTI dark chocolate buttons, some natural jute /twine, and some brown jute /twine.  The sentiment and the image are from the PTI Baby Button Bits stamp set. I colored the bear with copics (E34, E33, E31, and E30) and added a PTI lemon tart button.  

Here's how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC02), and link it up over on the iSpy Sketches blog.Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.
  • A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12.01 AM EST, and you have until noon on Wednesday EST to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.
  • We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Thursday" post where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!
  • Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)
  • Have fun and we look forward to "spying:" your creations!
