Weekend Sketch Challenge #105

One of my favorite paper crafting artists Beate Johns has a sketch challenge every weekend on her blog Fresh & Fun. This past weekend I decided to swim with the big fish and to participate. This card is the result of that challenge.

I picked a stamp by Memory Box entitled Cardinal Collage as the focal image and the sentiment is from the Stampin' UP! Snow Swirled set. Ink is SU Real Red, markers are SU Real Red and BIC Mark It Rambunctious Red. Cardstock is Real Red By SU and patterned paper is from the brand new SEI Winter Song collection.

As a critique of my own card I'll readily admit my marker coloring skills leave something to be desired. Bare with me please I'm afraid coloring is going to take quite a bit of practice.

Thanks for looking and yes HE stamps!


  1. Wow! What a beautiful card. I love the colors and the cardinals are so pretty. Glad to see you jumped in and joined the WSC. Look forward to seeing more from you!

  2. Very nice! I love the color combos for sure.

  3. This is beautiful! You've convinced me I NEED that SEI paper!

  4. Ben, this is just beautiful. I love the red accents with this blue, just pops off the card! You did a fantastic job!
