Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #13

Welcome to our 13th bi-weekly sketch challenge! Here’s the sketch for the next couple of weeks. It’s open to interpretation. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch, use different shapes, add other elements to suit the type of paper craft you’re making, and so on — just make sure the sketch is recognizable in your submission(s). You can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have STAMPlorations stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!

The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop — any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

Participate in all 3 challenges we host this month and you'll be in the running to win this prize package courtesy of All About Scrapping.

Our guest designer is Monika, who was our sketch challenge #10 winner.

Guest Designer
"G'Day. I have been creating cards and canvases for a couple of years now. At the moment I love using stamps, distress inks to give a watercolour look to my projects, but I especially love to create vintage style. I also love to crochet, knit, read, watch movies and travel, especially sightseeing, from the road to flying in gliders (love the bird's eye view). I am married, 20 years this year, to a fantastic husband and we have a loving cat named Munchkin. I live in Australia and I love to share my projects on my blog 'Stamping with a Vengeance'. I would like to thank STAMPlorations for the being a guest designer for the second time this year. I find lots of inspiration from the design team and I hope you will too ....cheers and have fun creating."
And here are the inspiration projects by the STAMPlorations design team.

  • Create a new project -- card, tag, mini album/scrapbook cover, layout, home decor item, or any paper craft -- on ANY THEME using the sketch as your guide. Any style is welcome — CAS, shabby chic, vintage, grunge, and so on. Post your creation on your blog and submit it by 11:55 p.m. PDT on Friday, June 13. Don’t have a blog? You can post a photo of your project on your Pinterest page, Flickr, or any public online gallery.
  • You must use stamps (rubber, cling, clear, digi — from any company) in your creation(s).
  • Copy the link of your blog entry where you have your project posted and enter it to the linky found at the end of this post. Remember to link directly to your blog post, not just your blog URL. (This will make it easy for us to find your submission and leave a comment. Please turn off word verification as well.)
  • Please include a text link back to this post in your blog post, as well as display the sketch, to encourage other paper crafters to participate.
  • You can submit up to 3 entries for this challenge.
  • You can submit your creation(s) to other challenges — as many as you want — except to other sketch challenges for obvious reasons!
  • Be a follower of our blog to qualify for the prize.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project! :-)

We’ll announce the winner and top picks on Sunday, June 15, here on the STAMPlorations™ blog and on the All About Scrapping page on Facebook. That’s it…we look forward to seeing what you create!
