Dad You're An All Star



Rarely do I post twice in a day...but I've been trying to figure out a way to interpret the PaperSmooches Sketch.  I am much better at color challenges than sketches! With sketches, I always take a very literal interpretation.  On my way to Jonathon's baseball game today, the idea of using the hammers to create the lines popped into my head. I don't own Copics so I colored use Stampin' Up Water Color pens. Have to say, I like the end result!  Now...off to get a very easy dinner in the oven!

LOVE this clever card Lynn! I'm in awe of your interpretation of the sketch...genius. You nailed it (pun totally intended).

Clever, and I don't think it's too literal at all (and you're talking to the Queen of literal).

Oh that is really so interesting and awesome.

Maureen said...

so cool! Love your flipped interpretation...I like to do that too when a sketch isn't working :) We're back from a fun trip with lots of goodies for the house, the closet, the studio and the kitchen bar :)

I especially love your little tacks or nails - they're perfectly placed and I know how hard it is to perfectly place 'random' images! loL!

Cute! love that it's not banners or strings. :) I have an idea using that hammer stamp to - must get it onto paper...
