Three sketches 11 Challenges ONE card

25.07 ZIG ZAG

Hi all, I have a different sort of combination of challenges today. As soon as I saw the challenge at ABC this week I had a little light bulb moment. You know how you look around the various challenges and think to yourself, I would love to use that sketch, and that one, and that one, but you then pick just one and make a card for that, well this week I have used three different sketches.

As I said I got the idea when I saw the ABC Challenge so here goes

ABC Challenge – Z is for Zigzag (whole card)25.07 Flat

Mojo Monday – Sketch (Page 1)25.07 First Page image

25.07 Second Page imageSimon Says Stamp – Sketch (Page 2)

Friday Sketchers – Sketch (Page 3)25.07 Third Page image

Sassy Cheryl – Cut It Out – Paper Piecing (Page 1) (the little girl’s shirt is paper pieced)

Mo’s Digital Challenge – Paper Piecing (Page 2) (The little girl’s whole outfit is paperpieced)

My Time to Craft – Check It Out - Check Pattern (Predominantly Page 3)

Cupcake Crafts – Cats or Dogs (Whole card)

Papertake Weekly – Cutie Patootie Anything Goes as long as it’s cute (Whole Card)

Digital Tuesday – Birthday card (Whole card)

Charisma Cardz – Anything But Square (Whole Card)

Colouring, apart from paper piecing, in each case was promarkers and the entire paper range including the paper piecing apart from the first page little girl’s shirt, as there was not a plain mauve in the pack, was from Nitwit’s Possibilities Digital paper pack.

I hope you enjoy my different take on the various themes, and that the various Challenge Blogs do not mind sketch combinations either. I did see each part of the zigzag as kind of a separate card so hopefully that will be okay. Now my brain hurts so I am going to lie down, lol
