Let's Get Sketchy

Hello everyone and welcome to Lets Get Sketchy, a brand new sketch site! As scrappers we all LOVE sketches, it takes a lot of the pain out of scrapping! So I have decided to create a sketch site for that purpose and need your help.

To get started I am looking for a few talented and creative scrappers to be on my design team. If you like sketches then this is the site for you! I am looking for a design team AND and sketch team. Your terms would run March 1st through Sept. 1st. The design team would be asked to complete 2 layouts per month from a given sketch and the sketch team would only be asked to create newly sketches for Lets Get Sketchy.

If you are interested and would like to be considered for a position then here is what you need to do:

1. Create a layout from the sketch below

2. Post about the DT call on your blog along with your layout from the sketch

3. Leave a comment below telling me that you would like to be considered for a position and which position you are applying for. Make sure you include the link to your blog where your layout is and your email address.

4. Become a new follower and spread the word about the sketch blog!

No previous DT experience needed to apply. Call will be open until Feb. 13th and announcement made Feb 14th. The first challenge will go live March 1st!

I can't wait to see what you come up with! International members ARE welcome to apply!

Here is what I created with the sketch above:

Steampunk Valentine (7 X 7). I created this using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Collection and a steampunk rubber stamp from Simply B Stamps. The flourishes are handmade with acetate and liquid pearls and I added stickles to the roses for some glimmer. The image is colored with Copics and I also added some steampunk stickers from Jolee's. The sentiment reads "You're the STEAM to my LOCAMOTIVE."

Steampunk Valentine with matching envelope. I used the same paper collection from Graphic 45 to create a matching envelope for this large card/layout. I chose this collection because it went with C.S.I case file #4 and to fit into my Steampunk Challenge over at
