One of the things I love about the stamp company Papertrey ink is that they challenge me to be more artistic and creative. One of the main reasons I started card making was to explore my creative side and now that I've been paper crafting for 5 years it really is easy to fall into the habit of creating the same old stuff. I challenge myself by using new techniques, new products and following different challenges.
This weeks Make it Monday video from PTI was about creating an original sketch. I often use others sketches when making a card so I really appreciate the fun of a sketch but I've never created a sketch by myself before.
In Nichole's video she encourages us to find an inspiration for a sketch.
You can check out her challenge on her blog below:
I found my inspiration on my drive home from work yesterday. I liked this Dunkin Donuts drive-through sign. I thought it had nice elements and while I was at the red light I grabbed a photo of the sign on my iphone.
Then I pulled out my papertrey ink papers and my Rosie Posie stamp set to make this fun, bright and cheerful birthday card.
Thanks for visiting my blog today Have a great day!
