American Art Stamp sketch set

I have for you today a trio of cards featuring hilarous images from American Art Stamp of which two of the three have been incorporated into sketch challenges. The sketch challenges featured are today's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO82) and Taylored Expressions weekend sketch challenge (TECC63). About a month or so ago, one of my SFYTT pals, Amy Sheffer, featured a card set she'd made using various sketch challenges. She got the idea to make a "weekend sketch set" from the fabulously talented Laura Fredrickson and here's a link to one of Laura's sets from March.

I can't believe how rewarding it was to sit down this morning and create three cards in less than a day, snort! I believe the process was streamlined for me by the following: 1. using the same stamp line 2. others' sketches 3. the scraps I had lying around my stamp table from my most recent SFYTT creation. Those three elements being predetermined cut way back on my decision making time (which can be HUGE!). Without further adieu, here are close up shots of each...

Look at you, Ms. Fabulous! Love the color combo - love the black line images. You always seem to make mass production ideas look absolutely divine without looking you'll need a 3 week vacation to recoup from the effort. Adore these!
