SSS Challenge #282

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #282! This one is crazy versatile for your imagination! 🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:

My card for the week: hawkins_jill_ms c_wmGetting ready for Back-to-School…and EARLY no less!! Wahhhoooooo!

The card base was stamped with Grout Gray polka dots, but overnight, I think the card stock absorbed the ink more than I anticipated. ha! 🙂 You can just barely make them out.

hawkins_jill_ms c_00_wmFor this panel’s background, I actually *stamped* the Abstract Stencil with the Field Day die ink on a card stock panel. The panel had been laying around my desk for a while and I finally used it! Double whahoo! 😛

My card was made with supplies from My Favorite Things: (background stamps rock!)

Inspired by Photography…

PrintToday is another Inspirational on the MFT Blog…Certain to be a good read! This day is all about being inspired by Art.

I am an avid fan of black and white photography. Heck, photography in general I completely enjoy. This is one of my all time favorites: “Chicago” by Jerome Hawkins.

Chicago-OPJerome (Pat) Hawkins happens to be my father-in-law, but he wasn’t at the time I purchased this photograph ;). Just love this one so. It was the only piece of real art I owned back then. His photographs are all meticulously done with perfection. I do not have that much patience. Ever. 🙂 Plus: Chicago.

Take a minute to check out Mr. Hawkins other photographs. 🙂

Here’s a card I was inspired to make:

HAWKINS_JILL_youre the man_wmI enjoy using lots of fun color combos, but I am also a HUGE fan of the gray scale. I wanted to keep this card simple, like the amazing photograph. Plus, I think these spiffy ties are fitting for a city setting–fancy like. 🙂

HAWKINS_JILL_youre the man_00_wmThe My Favorite Things blog is sure to have lots more inspiration. Oh, and again: Prizes!!

This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:
