retro sketches 48

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I can hardly believe that it's the end of January already.  I know it sounds so cliche, but where does the time go?  Saturday, of course, is the challenge reveal at retro sketches and this challenge marks the end of my time with the amazing design team over there.  

I'm so grateful that Arielle asked me to join her and the retro sketches team for the month of January.  So as a little celebration to myself I inked up a brand-new stamp set to create my card this week.



The challenge from Nacho Average Challenge provided these cool colors, which is shaping up to be a favorite of mine.


These colors are perfect for a valentine, but I went in a different directions partly because I wanted to use my cool Big Bang Theory washi tape.  And no, the washi tape has nothing to do with The Big Bang Theory, its just cool tape with complicated, impossible to decipher equations on it!  But since I'm a huge fan of that show, I've decided to rename my tape in its honor.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to retro sketches.  You'll be inspired for sure!

Every time I see one of your cards with Washi tape, I tell myself to get out my unopened rolls and try it. I just LOVE what you do with it. This sketch and your colors are fantastic. Love Big Bang Theory too!

Hi Jen, I was checking out this week's sketch and when I came across your card I just had to come over and tell you just how much I LOVE it! I for one love the color combo and man oh man I love that senitment on the front of your card. If you have a sec. can you let me know where you got it from? I also love the 'Big Bang Theory' as well and I think you are so spot on with that washi tape. :O) Ok, where is that from? I am sorry that I just discovered the retrosketch blog last week, but I will for sure be back to see more of your awesome cards. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
