Well the first Caardvarks Challenge of 2008 has been posted ... an exclusive Becky Fleck sketch. A link to your card needs to be posted in the comments by January 18th (or it can be e-mailed if you don't have a blog or gallery). And yes ... there is a prize for the winner of this creative exploration ... a big priority mail box stuffed with scrapbooking (or card making) goodies ... seriously, it will be stuffed.
Here's one of my sketch creations. When I first saw the sketch, I started thinking of the different vertical sentiments that I had in my collection. This quote by Eleanor Roosevelt is one of my favorites. Then I immediately thought of these "scary" li'l monsters by Green Grass Stamps (okay, so they're not really that scary, but this cute little guy looks scared). I colored him using Prismacolor Pencils and Mona Lisa odorless paint thinner for blending. I even added little dots of glitter to his eyeballs.
Papers are from the Pink Martini Pink Squirrel collection and the rick-rack is from the notions section of my local fabric store.
I can't wait to see what you create.
