ISSC05 - Just Because

Have you been playing along with the newest sketch challenge 
on the block called iSpy Sketches?  

If you are up for a REAL challenge, this is the challenge blog for you!  I am a complete sketch-o-holic and I must admit that these sketches are like no others that I have seen on other challenge blogs.  So, put your thinking caps on and check out what Kim Teasdale has cooked up for us for this week's challenge!  

This week's sketch is inspired by the fabulous designer DJ Rants.  I have come across her work in the SCS gallery often and it always stops me in my tracks.  Here is her card that is the inspiration for this week's challenge:

Gorgeous, right?  And here is the sketch:

After much staring at this sketch, I decided to pull out my favorite Verve flower images for this sketch:

Stamp sets:  Verve Great Friend and Sunny Days
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics:  R29, R24, R05
CS:  PTI white, and black
DSP:  MME Quite Contrary
Accessories:  Black rhinestones

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!
Be sure to check what the other Special Agents have created for some additional inspiration!

  5. Shivers! What a magnificent card! Talk about knocking ones socks off! Thanks for hipping me to the new sketch challenge group. I do struggle with sketches, but this looks more inspiring than daunting. Might be down to your interpretation though. Jeebus, is this card lovely!
