Let's Get Sketchy!

Happy Memorial Day and welcome to a new challenge week!

This week we are featuring a sketch challenge but before we get to that, let's award a prize from our wonderful sponsor from last week - Ruth Nava! Random.org picked our winner from all entries and that person is #7 - Brittany! Congratulations! Brittany, please contact me at mbryt1@bex.net with your mailing information so Ruth can get your prize out in the mail. And a big THANK YOU to Ruth for sponsoring a challenge week here at H2H!

Another little information to share with you before we get to this week's challenge - this is the last Guest DT post for our fabulously talented Deneen! Thank you for being a part of the team for a brief time - we love your artwork! Watch for an announcement regarding the June Guest DT in a couple of days!

Ok now on to our sketch and artwork! Remember that a sketch is just an inspiration - feel free to flip and adjust to suit you - we just need to be able to tell that your artwork was based on the sketch. Here it is:


 Now let's see what the team created based on this sketch, starting with Deneen:

Here's the 1sr of Deneen's cards and here's the 2nd:

So different from one another and yet so perfect with that sketch! Great job Deneen!








Inspired yet? Then join in the fun! Just create your artwork based on the sketch and upload to your blog or other public online gallery. We'll stop by and see what you've been creating and you might just land in our next Friday Five!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Thanks for the great challenge. My son turns 28 on Monday, so it was a great opportunity to make something special for him.

Posted just in the nick of time! :)

I'm not even sure if I made the post deadline or not, but it doesn't even matter. It was just good to participate again. I've been missing out the past few weeks on some great challenges. Hopefully I can get refocused here and start putting some more time in my corner. :)

Heather said...

Phew!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
