The very FIRST Deconstructed Sketch

Hey everyone! It’s a big day around here!! I’m so excited!! Today is the very first issue of the Deconstructed Sketch. 🙂 And let me just tell you the DT has blown me AWAY!! But before we get to that I need to make a few long winded comments and explain the rules and THEN you get to see the gorgeousness the design team has created. 🙂

Design Team Update

First up I’d like to introduce two additional members of the Deconstructed Sketch Girls Design Team. First is the amazing and wonderful Lori Boyd. Lori and I have worked together on numerous projects and now that she is getting back into the stamping world after a little hiatus I am sooo very happy she has decided to join us here! Second is the very fabulous and very talented Emma Eads. I’ve been a fan of Emma’s work back since our days on the Oh, Alice! design team and she makes some amazing cards with some FABULOUS coloring. Welcome Lori and Emma!!

Deconstructed Guidelines

Secondly you can find the official rules of the Deconstructed Sketch up under the Deconstructed Sketch tab at the top of the blog or at the bottom of this post. 🙂

This Week’s Sponsor

Our sponsor this week is the Wax Fruit Company. The Wax Fruit Company digis are illustrated by our very own Arielle Gordon. She has created an amazing array of versatile and fun digis that range for every single occasion. They are great if you love to color and also wonderful if you don’t…they looks stunning it just black and white. Arielle has very generously donated a $15.00 gift certificate to her store for the random winner of this week’s sketch challenge!

The Sketch

Now let’s get to that sketch shall we?

My Sample:

I used Arielle’s gorgeous Cherry Bowl digi and colored it with Copics. I LOVE this set of digis, they are so perfect for about a million different everyday cards.  I used a bit of my October Afternoon Fly a Kite paper and a lot of Vintage Photo Distress Ink to pull this card together.

Design Team Samples:

And here’s what the amazing DT had to say about it!


Amazing work, huh?!?
