Have you tried any of the great sketches over at Page Plans this month? Lots of fun - sketches always give you a great jumping off point! I've been showing you the card sketches but they also have fantastic layout sketches for scrappers each week that I'm hoping to try soon (my scrapbooks are soooooooo far behind!!).
Here is my card for the bonus mid-week sketch this week. When I saw this adorable Little Tees set designed by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K I just thought it was so fun! My good buddie (hee hee) Joanne made some great cards with it and every time I saw one I just loved it! So . . . now it is mine! :)
I was very impressed with the great impression you get with these unmounted rubber stamps too - the quality is excellent. One other funny little thing, but I loved the way the t-shirt actually stamps. I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture but the lines of the t-shirt are not straight and all the same width, it varies and changes which really adds to the realistic look of the t - so cool!!
From this picture it looks like the ric rac doesn't match . . . trust me it does!! If you know me at all, you know that I wouldn't use it if it did not match! :) The paper is some very pretty SEI Dill Blossom paper. I think the retro feel goes well with the t-shirt and it's retro butterfly (which has a bit of Lime Stickles added to it..
Go check out the sketch and give it a try, I'd love to see what you come up with! And go check out Melanie's set - there are tons of great images! I'll be back a little later with my Prettie Wednesday post - thanks for visiting!!
