Get Sketchy #34

2nd post for today
scroll down to see my fun Tim Holtz Project!!!

It's Friday already wow where did the week go? My kids had spring vacation this week and I am still here yay it was a busy week and I am sad to see it coming to an end. It's time for another Get Sketchy this week and we are being sponsored by Wags n'Whiskers they are a fun digital company. For my card I used K and Company Dp and a Kaiser Craft rubon for the sentiment. I am really not good at coloring with my Copics I still need alot of practice so if I can I like to paper piece and that's what I did for the Little Girls dress and shoes plus a really great ways for you to get your image to match perfectly with the DP you use. Make sure to check out the other fabulous DT cards it is so fun to see everyone's take on the sketches!!!

Tim Holtz Project

I say it's never too late to try something new. Hi everyone it's Stephanie here to share a Tim Holtz project with you. I thought I would do something other than a card this time around and decided to make a door hanger or you can hang it on the wall. The base of this project is made with a cardboard box cut with one of my dies a great way to do some recycling. Then I covered my base with some Seven Gypsies Dp and did some inking up around the edges. The sentiment is from the Good Thoughts Stamp set.The flower was done with the Tattered Flowers die love this die so many possibilities with this one now that making your own embellishments is the new thing these days I also want to note that you can use these dies in your cuttlebug machine. I used a Tim Holtz Bead Chain to hang it with. I think that I could very quickly get hooked on all the great Tim Holtz products and Patti has a great selection. I hope that you liked my project today and I hope it encourges you to think outside the box and try something new.
