S & S Sketch Challenge #198

Here I am today with a quick post for OWH's Sketch Challenge #198 found here.  I deviated a bit from the sketch but then again I do that often.
I started by flipping the sketch and I did not stick to the original measurements either  (slap, slap).  The horizontal strip I have should have been vertical because of the flip but I just didn't like it that way, so I left it horizontal.  The sentiment is by Katie & Co. and everything else is by SU!.  The featured stamper on Friday was Donna S. and I CASED her technique of making dots with an eraser. Thank you Donna.  I used to do that years ago and then forgot all about it.  I'm glad I saw it again on Friday.  It is fun to do and I enjoyed it.  That will have to do it for me today.  Thanks for taking the time to take a peek.  See you all soon.

  1. Love the pencil eraser dots, Donna! I almost never stick to the measurements other than to make an A2 card. I just work with whatever image I'm using and go with the measurement that suits it best. :-D

  9. Donna, Love how you made the sketch your own! Your eraser dots turned out great -- I really have to give that technique a try! And, thanks for being such a loyal friend. I'm not nearly as good at this comment thing as you are. But, seeing your name pop up always brings a smile to my face.
