Blogger's Challenge #59: Same but different!

The challenge for this week was to use the same sketch different stamps, cardstock and inks. It was a fun one. Awhile back many stampers were using this sketch, an SCS sketch.

Last night was the last night for tee ball for the summer. I don't have kids in tee ball but I've been the supervisor for this Park and Rec program since 1996! Most of the kids that coach the teams for me, played tee ball when I started!



The second card was inspired by the new stamp we received at convention called "Inspired by Nature." I am LOVING this set. I brought out my watercolor crayons to color directly onto the stamp, misted with water and stamped the image two times, without recoloring. Then, added the phrase. Notice the ribbon? Yep, 1/4" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon is back in the new catalog!!!! Whoo hoo! (I had kept mine and with our piece in our make and take kits, compared and it's the same as the old chocolate!)



Make sure to see what the other BC players did with this challenge...that's what I'm going to do!

Awesome job on the challenge, Lisa. I've always liked this sketch but never tried it myself. Can't decide which of your cards I like best!

I remember that sketch challenge. Both of your cards are lovely. I especially love the one with the new flower. It was awesome to see you in SLC. We'll have to hang together more often.
