March 11 Sketchathon

Today, in our month long sketchathon, we have a layout sketch up for your inspiration.  


Here's my take on the sketch



I had fun with this sketch! For the background I took an ink pad and swiped ink all around a white piece of cardstock and then using a stencil and modeling paste added the raised ridges all over. Then I took red and black ink pads and swiped them over the modeling paste.  I added minimal embellishments because I didn't want to take away from the background. 

These photos are from a quick trip we took to Epcot a few years ago. We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort in the Pirate themed rooms. It was fun, which we really needed right then. 

I hope you'll play along with us. We're having so much fun with our sketchathon and we'd love to see your takes on our sketches. You have until the end of March to enter. Just share your layout with the InLinkz link below. If you'd like an extra chance to win be sure to share your projects in the Creative Inspiration forum also.

It allows you to reink and stamp over again. .... it's worth the $ for sure. I love it. If you buy it please tell Kelly that Bev sent you.
Here is how it works.
17155764_10155112277576133_4449310468527
you put your papers to stamp on inside and hold them down with the magnets.
The lid is ope and the stamps are sticking and ready to ink.
17155591_10155112277621133_4691722816469
Put the top down and apply presser down to transfer the ink.
16996111_10155112277771133_2951853920298
Lift the lid and if the ink didn't transfer fully from the stamps onto the paper.. reapply more ink and do stamping again.
It's that easy.
17191036_10155112277586133_8521532203888
Do as many times applying ink only to the bad section.

Wednesday Stash and Card Sketch

16830645_10155063708266133_4181408338167

Welcome to MARCH SKETCHATHON  and todays Wednesday Stash.
So using the sketch above ... my challenge is to use your stash to make your project.
I dug into my stash and found this card/ envelope that was purchased at least a year ago. I then grabbed my Heartfelt Creations flower dies and used scraps to die cut the flowers. The cardstock is out of stash too.
So have fun creating using stash and the sketch.
Here is my project.
