Freshly Made Sketches 180

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Happy Wednesday!  Yay, we're half way through the work week and, of course, that means a brand new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the always amazing Jen Timko is our hostess and she's designed an amazing sketch for us!

When I sat at my desk to make my card I had a vague idea to use this super hero guy.  So I stamped him, colored him and hoped for a fabulous idea for the rest of the card.  The rest came much more slowly and had lots of iterations before I settled on this version.

As you can see I took some *ahem* liberties with the sketch but since I got the okay from my Freshly Made Sketches teamies  I forged ahead.  My cityscape takes the place of the horizontal layer and "twine" and with apologies my sentiment is not in the right place.  But I think it's pretty cute and the end result embraces the spirit of the sketch!

I'm also playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  I've never joined them and since this week is "anything goes" and my super dude is a Paper Smooches image I wanted to join in the fun.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some amazing cards for you this week.  Their interpretations of the sketch will get your creative juices flowing for sure.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is such a super card (sorry couldn't resist). I think this is such a clever and neat take on the sketch. The skyline is perfect and that super hero is too cute.
