 Hello everyone,

A new challenge today over at As You Like It  and Brenda is our hostess and the theme is " SKETCH" 

shows us and tell us why, it is your favourite sketch..

Mmmm..well, to be honest, I think I have only ever followed a sketch once before for another DT..I'm inclined to wander off from what I'm supposed to be doing but  this, time, I did good..

I found this online, and thought it looked good for a tag..
or vintage style.I just liked it and now it is going to be my favourite..

so printed this out, no good if I don't, and then cut all my elements..

and layered them up onto the tag, so that part was good to go..

To make those circles interesting I die cut numbers in circles
and I ended up with the positive and negative.

Then the flag tags or whatever you call them I cut in design papers.

covered the tag as well and then all those bits were ready..

Follow the sketch, follow the sketch..

Gluing the small numbers underneath the circle..
follow the sketch..

Which then went on top of those flag tags.
Follow the sketch..

DONE!! I did it.....then..

I loaded it up with all sorts of other stuff, couldn't help it, I just had to..
but the original sketch is still there, just covered a little bit..

So there you go..

We are sponsored by..

with a $25 voucher...thank you.

So come on over HERE with your favourite sketch and join in..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Well, for a start Chrissy, when ever we had to do a sketch I always ended up twisting it about or moving things around, so you did well to keep, more or less, to the brief, hahaha.
This is gorgeous, I love the one you chose, love all your little added bits and bobs, the photo of the intense looking guy is very 'nice'. Anyways I love it. xx

Gorgeous tag following a sketch. Adding some extra's is always allowed, as long as the original sketch is still recognizable. And it is!!!! You did a great job!!!

You did good with the sketch!
You may have surmised that I use them ALOT and still I will accidentally overlook an element I was supposed to add. Also, sometimes I intentionally change things up.
So, hey, following them exactly all the time thwarts creativity in my book!

Sarah said...

Great job with this sketch like the numbers on the circles, like how you added the sentiment across the banners, and the extra tab across the top.
