Deconstructed Sketch 204

Deconstructed Sketch 204

Hi everyone. It’s with a very heavy heart that I bring the news that this will be the last Deconstructed Sketch. This was a very tough decision for me as I LOVE making these sketches. They area great push for me to be creative and I love that other’s find them helpful in their own creations. I still love making sketches and may very well find my way back to the Deconstructed Sketch some time in the future but right now it’s sadly time for me to make room for new things coming down the road. One of the very hardest parts of closing up is saying goodbye to my amazing design team. They have been one of the best groups of ladies I have ever had the privilege to work with. Some of them have been here since the very first sketch and that just blows my mind. I’m starting to get a little bit teary so it’s time to talk about the happenings for our last sketch. Here are the details (Note: There are PRIZES!!!):

Geek Chic by Jen Shults, DS204 stamps from The Greeting Farm

For my card I used Cheeky Geeky from The Greeting Farm and colored her with Copic Markers on Canson 150 lb Illustration Paper. I decided to try out this new paper for coloring with Copics and I really like it. It’s VERY sturdy and blends almost effortlessly. The paper also has a little bit of texture which gives a different looks. The patterned papers in my card are from Doodlebug’s  Back to School paper pad.

I will be leaving all of the old sketches on Flickr so you can find them in the Deconstructed Sketchbook. Now it’s time to hop around and see what everyone else on the DT has been up to and leave them a little love.


Tell me what you think. I'd love to hear from you!!!
