Super Sketchy Sunday

We got a great sketch today and were challenged to use certain words -- I stuck with the easy one "Friend".  I made 2 cards from the sketch and went in totally different directions.  TFL

Supplies -- K&Company paper & Basic kraft paper
Ink distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distresser and then inked them in brown.  
The title was cut from Tim Holtz grungeboard using Jasmine cricut cartridge; and then I used a sueding technique on them.
I colored them in brown with a sharpie and then chalked them to give them a suede look.  

The fish are a digital stamp from  The papers are all scrap.  The letters are cosmo cricket tiny type.  

I thought it was fun that one sketch could produce 2 totally different cards.  


  1. what a gorgeous card!! love the shabby chic look and great lace and word!!

  2. I too chose friend and have several that I could have done, but I did jus tone...will do more later hehe. Your two cards are the sunglasses on the fish. Crazy friends are the best...I know hehe. Great cards and I love them.

  3. I like you interpretaions of the sketch, I think both cards are great! That fish with the sunglasses is cool..hehehe

  4. Las dos tarjetas están genial!
    Una gran palabra, los amigos son muy importantes.

  5. Wow! You did not only do one, but two, cards to the challenge! Way to go girl!
    They are both great takes on the sketch...but I have to confess that I totally LOVE the first one!
