The Deconstructed Sketch No. 163

Hello there!

Welcome to another edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

Jen has another awesome sketch for us this week -- so full of possibilities! The DT has so many different takes on it. I always love to see how everyone interprets the same sketch. Creativity is so fun!


I sometimes have a little trouble coming up with a color starting point... there are just so many options to choose from, and I don't like to get stuck in a rut, just using my favorite colors over and over again. Well, I came across this website called Design Seeds (that is probably not new to anyone else except me!) :) and it is FULL of wonderful color inspiration!

I chose this as my inspiration piece:

...and came up with this:

I had a lot of fun with my little Cuttlebug and several new and old favorite dies. I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and embossing paste for the background texture.

Here is the list of the other Design Team members so you can check out what amazing things they have created using this week's awesome sketch!

I hope you are inspired to give this fabulous sketch a try. If you want to play along with us at The Deconstructed Sketch this week, the linky tool and details are over on Jen's blog!
