I love sketches, especially when I'm either in a "rut" and need inspiration, or (like today) I'm not feeling super-confident in my cardmaking abilities. LOL
Retro Sketches never fails to have fun, creative sketches posted, along with some fabulous inspiration cards. Although I don't play along with this challenge as often as I should, I have many of the sketches pinned and use them regularly.
This weeks sketch has fun hexagons that I just couldn't resist:
I wanted to use my July Counterfeit Kit, but I didn't have any hexagon embellies or even a hexagon punch. So, I trimmed a hexagon from a different patterned paper to use as my template, traced it into some pretty papers from my kit, and hand-cut the hexes for my card. I adhered the speech bubble print with foam squares to make it pop just a bit.
So, I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. With nothing on my schedule for the day, I plan on busting out the ink pads and playing with my stamps for the first time in...well, too long. :)
