From the Heart Stamps Midweek Inspiration

Hello, everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am very excited to share this weeks card post as Guest Designer for From the Heart Stamps! Woohoo! 
I am having a great time playing along with their talented design team each week!
Not only does From the Heart Stamps have some incredibly adorable images, but at From the Heart Stamps Blog a sketch challenge is hosted regularly. It is called a Sketch Challenge with a tWiSt: a sketch is provided, but so is an additional requirement. Don't need to feel overwhelmed with rules and restrictions! You can choose to use the sketch, OR you can create using the tWiSt....or you can do BOTH! :)
Here is the current sketch:

Sketch with a tWiSt #074
tWiSt: Paint! (watercolor or acrylic)
This sketch was first posted on Monday, July 7, and this is just a friendly reminder that you should join in! The sketch challenge for this sketch is open until July 27 to give the DT a little bit of a summer vacation. Plenty of time is left for you to whip up your take on this one!
Here's a really cool thing about these sketch challenges: EVERYONE IS A WINNER! You can earn a $1 discount code toward any digi image in their store. No, not by being a random winner, but just by entering! And even better, can use multiple codes toward purchases in their store! So, if you play three weeks in a row, you can buy a new digi for only $ .50! Play four times in a row, and "buy" a new digi with all four of your codes without spending a dime out of your own pocket! 
See......I told you that everyone is a winner there! :)

Here's another cool thing about From the Heart Stamps.......they also run a month-long challenge in addition to their sketch challenges. "Why is that cool?" you ask??? Because if you use the monthly image, you will be emailed next months image 
FOR FREE! that I've explained my excitement about this great digi-stamp company, let's move on to my card for this week.  This week I have used the sketch only.

I chose to play with the ever-so-suave French Mustache Birdbrain image on my card. I colored my image digitally, with PSE. This sketch was a CAS type, so I kept my card as a CAS card. I used a couple of papers that were pieces from a previous project. They were lying on my desk, just lost, it seemed, and were perfect size scraps for this, so I grabbed them up!

I hope you enjoy your day! I appreciate you stopping by, and would love it if you'd leave a comment!
I hope you'll join us for the sketch challenge!
Thanks for stopping!
Happy Crafting!

  1. I completely agree, CAS is the way to go with this sketch and you did another fab job with their images.


I read and enjoy every one of your comments! Thank you so much!
