Crafting from Sketches

I used to really enjoy using sketches to make my own creation, because I could take the sketch and wiggle it around to do what seemed right to me.  Still having all the elements, but not necessarily in exactly the same places.  However, there are so many people who expect you to follow a sketch EXACTLY which takes the fun out of it.  Here are two cards made from sketches.

This first one goes with the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist challenge that is not EXACTLY like the original sketch as I did a mirror image.


This one was done almost EXACTLY per the My Favorite Things sketch.  My white piece was a bit too long, so I attached it at the left with the others.  I also rounded two of the corners to give it a bit more class.


This next one wasn’t done per a sketch, but was a CASE card.  That is, looking at someone’s card and copying it with a few changes.  This is for a CASE challenge at StampTV.

This last one is for the Simple Salutations challenge at MFP SpeedyTV, which was to use a sentiment with a plane, train, or automobile.  It wasn’t what I had planned to do, but I was running out of time.


Now, here is the supply list for each of the cards:
