Welcome Kre8tors to another Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you have joined us! Whether this is your first time hopping with us, or you’re a seasoned hopper, you are in for a treat! This month, the members of KBH from around the world are bringing you inspiration in the form of a sketch challenge! This is one of my favorite sketches and I’m so glad to bring it back to debut some awesome products from the new Annual Catalog!
Here’s a copy of the sketch challenge that was issued to the members of KBH. You might recognize this sketch from a previous post involving some super cute pandas from Sale A Bration earlier this year.
I decided to use the beautiful Sea of Textures stamp set to re-create this sketch challenge. I am SO in love with how it turned out! I used Berry Burst for the frame and Octopus with a Crumb Cake card base, and whisper white scrap pieces.
I really love all the different nautical textures in this set, like the fish scales and fishing net. I also just can’t get enough of that octopus! I just think he’s so different and fun!
Be sure to watch my tutorial to see how this card came together, and scroll down to the big ol’ NEXT button to hop along to Lisa’s project. I love how she interpreted this sketch challenge! Thanks so much for hopping with us, and we will see you soon!
Crumb Cake Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Berry Burst Frame: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″, cut frame 1/4″ thick
Whisper White Scraps: 1/2″ x 3-1/2″, 3/4″ x 1-1/2″, Scrap for Octopus
