2 Sketches 4 You: Kazan's Sketch #65

Happy Monday!

It's time for another great sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You!

This week our sponsor is Digital Doodles by Kathy Martin! I have always loved Kathy's work and now she has her own amazing digital stamps! Her artwork is so fun and versatile, I am a huge admirer of hers!

I used her pumpkin, copying and pasting it 9 times to make an all-over print for my background. I printed it on patterned paper from Stampin' Up! that looks like an old book page, then colored it in with my Pure Color Pencils. That's about as fancy as I get with coloring, as you know! lol! Then I resized her "Happy Harvest" digital stamp and made it a little bit smaller to fit inside my button with a 1" circle punch. It's hard to tell in the photo, but that black piece behind the button is some hand-dyed wool (from my other crafty, pre-scrappy days!) that really has a great variegated look. I wrapped the yarn around to look like a sheaf of wheat from harvest time, maybe it worked?! I grew up in a small town but I was not a country farm girl! ha!

Be sure and head over to 2S4Y and check out the rest of the amazing samples from the design team and upload your submission to play along for a chance to win Card of the Week and the fabby prize from Digital Doodles!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
