Cosmo Cricket Sketch 2 different Ways!

When I saw THIS post on the Cosmo Cricket blog I immediately grabbed all the CC collections I had and fanned them out on mydesk - then I picked two that were inspiring me and made these two cards. You all know how much I love sketch challenges & to have a chance to be published in CARDS mag is a HUGE bonus so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! 

Here is my first take on the sketch:

I absolutely adore this new Birthday Ian stamp available now at The Greeting Farm. That banner he's holding is perfect for ANYTHING! For the celebrate I used a sentiment from the new clear stamp set Bannerific also by The Greeting Farm. The paper is Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend Collection. I just LOVE this collection - what am I saying I love ALL Cosmo Cricket Collections!!! ;) I'm also coming back to participate in a favorite challenge blog of mine, Make it Colourful and tried grounding my image. I used prisma colored pencils to create a shadow below Ian but the pic didn't quite capture it well.

And here is my second take:

This is entirely done with Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 (another fav). I love these chipboard banners and the image just seemed to say accomplishment so I created a congrats card using Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type which is another product I have just a bit of an obsessive collection of! haha This card I took more liberty with the sketch although I believe you can still see the foundation of the sketch itself. 

Thanks for stopping by!
