2 sketches 4 you

Starving Artistamps is the 2 sketches for you challenge blog sponsor this week:

these next 5 cards are all done using this sketch:

I really enjoy using sketches, I find it really frees up the mind! 
Some of these came out a lot closer to the sketch a couple were a little "looser" interpretation. 

This is probably one of my top favorites. 
I used the new Basic Grey Marrakech pad and those colors make me so happy! 
Products used:
Basic Grey Marrakech 6x6 pad
Stamps: Starving Artistamps Sweet and Simple Sentiments, Percy SA DoodleFactory Animals collection.

Lots of layering going on with this one. 
I wish I did the Martha Stewart fence punch in a darker color. 
But other than that I thought this card was nice and cheery.
Supplies used:
Basic Grey paper 
Stamps: Starving Artistamps Faith Sentiments set, Autumn sunflower set.

Stamps used:
Starving Artistamps All about Easter sentiment, bird tracks, and SA "twee" from the country set and DoodleFactory Easter for the cracked egg. 

This is another top on my list of favorites. I just love Sir Silimus
Stamps used: 
Starving Artistamps Western Flourish background, Starving Artistamps DoodleFactory Fairytale set (knight and steed)
Other: Quickutz dragonfly alphabet covered with diamond glaze. 

Ok so I strayed a little with this one! 
The cowboy, bronco, saddle (hand made) and saddle pad (basic grey Marrakech) 
were all layered separate pieces. 
All stamps Starving Artistamps: cowhide (background), bronco, cowboy, howdy sentiment.

WOOOW, you've really been busy! All of them are just adorable. I love the one with Percy, the papers and colors are lovely and the one with the sun flower is fabulous! Sir Silimus is also great and I'm so happy to see you playing with your alphabets that I (according to you) made you buy!:)

Oh, how fun to see more and more of your work - you'll have to send me one of your Tracey Originals some day.

Love how you gave the elephant a little headdress! Works perfectly with the paper. And the Twee card is too funny. Keep em coming Tracey, you're making up for my dry spell. (I do have a couple of ideas I'm really excited to try out for the easter set, here's hoping I finish before easter actually gets here).
