It's been awhile since I last completed a sketch challenge. Part of the reason I haven't done any lately is that we moved my stamping area to the back bedroom and this room doesn't have a computer in it. I usually leave the computer on with the sketch challenge on the screen when I'm stamping out a challenge card. It's not a convenient way to do the challenges but it worked for me. I guess it's one of my quirks. Now a days I pencil the sketch on paper and go from there.
Here's two cards for two different sketch challenges. I originally thought that I would do Beate's from Fresh & Fun challenge but then I realized that since I was making two at one time I could change the other card up a tad and it would work for Jen's "All Kine Ways" challenge too. "All Kine Ways" as quoted from Jen's site "... is a Hawaii local "pidgin" term, which means "all sorts of ways". The challenge is simple... the task is to create 2 cards using the same stamp. But change them up a lil' bit, by doing something different with the next card.
It was fun to make both cards. It gave me a chance to use the this cute bug and lizard stamp set from The Angel Company. I've had it since the beginning of the year. It's about time that I inked it up.
