More Feb/March Sketches

Here we have some Sketch Challenges to share.  Almost at the half way mark for the Sketch Challenges, you still have plenty of time to have a go at Anita's great designs.  Plenty of time everyone, the pumpkin is still ticking, love to see what you come up with.....
Gold by Deb Pulford (CT)
It's great to see how you can put a different spin on a Sketch by changing the colours, and the embellishments. Deb has used masculine colours and embellishments to change the look of a flowery sketch to one more suitable for her athletic boys page. The chip and metal cogs work well, and the black inked edges define each piece. Well done Deb.
Bella is 4 by 'Zan Boyle
'Zan has used an embossing folder to add an interesting texture to her vellum strips. A great effect, surrounded by handmade flowers and diecut shapes made with the Cricut. The soft pinks tie in by drawing your eye to the photos. Well done 'Zan.
Who I Am by Beth Metcalf
Beth has tackled the Sketch with quite an eclectic layout using transparency, cutouts, and all the extra bits and pieces that explain "who" her daughter is, and what she's about. A great mix of colours from the velvet ribbons, lace butterflies, paper flowers to the photos themselves. Mounted up with a fine border, the black and red stand out nicely. Well done Beth.
Happy Birthday Card by 'Zan Boyle
This card is a typical outdoor boy card, with lots of cutout bugs and blokey colours.  The addition of the brightness of Copic colouring has this little fellow jumping out at you.  A card any little fellow (a big fishy bloke!) would love.  Well done 'Zan. 

Thanks for sharing everyone, and I'm sure we'll see some more interesting creations before these Sketches finish up.

Wowsers Zan, love your sketch layout. Your embossed vellum strips are an absolute delight. Love those beautiful flowers too, and your card is divine. Those bugs and the string are a fabulous addition. Beth, love your colour scheme. Your embellishments are all fantastic - such an awesome sketch layout.

What different interpretations from the same sketch! Fab blokey take on the sketch Deb. Loving all those masculine embellishments. Your embossing on the vellum is such a lovely detail Zan and the card is so perfect for a boy with all the bugs on it! Beth - great to see a page for a teen (I'm guessing?). Love how you've flipped the sketch - the photos of your daughter are stunning!

Love the BOY twist on the sketches! It is always good to get some masculine ideas as they seem to be harder to come by...
