Take 3!

Hello everyone, Vanessa here with another one of our occasional midweek Little Extras, but don't forget Keryn's Scallop dare is ongoing until Friday and we're loving the cards - keep 'em coming!! :)

Following on from Lythan's Little Extra a few weeks ago, I thought it would be a good idea to draw a card sketch and show how it can be used to produce 3 very different cards (or at least I hope so!!).

I love using sketches, sometimes I follow the sketch rigidly but then sometimes I flip it or just take elements from it to use - that is the beauty of them, they're so versatile. You can use them just as a starting point as well as for getting you going if your mojo is being rather elusive!!

Please do join in and use the sketch (you don't have to do 3 cards!) and pop your link into the comments section for us to come and have a peep at. :-)

Here is the sketch :-

And here are my cards :-

Thanks, Vanessa.

Hellooo, I've not done a DCM in a while, but always follow them and write them down ready to do. Anyway, I've made a card, which I think may qualify for last Friday's, Oct 3rd. Thanks lovelies. http://stampawelshcreation.blogspot.com/
