Wednesday Rockin'

Happy Wednesday!

I used to color all the time!  I have so many stamps and digi stamps and I used to love to sit and color, but somehow about 8 months ago I got away from coloring and I started making cards with more paper embellishments.  Well, I got out my pencils last week and I made a Halloween card.  I kind of have been kind of restless with my paper crafting and have been wanting to try new things and maybe revisit some old things so I went out surfing the blogs and found a really fun sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl stamps.  the sketch was really great and I wanted to use my  cute Some Odd Girl digi stamps.  This stamp is just so perfect for boys!

Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on the sketch.



I have been using up my stash lately and so I continued with this promise and broke out some really old Basic Grey papers and followed the sketch.  The only thing I did different was add some burlap navy blue twine from the Stringery.  I also placed my sentiment more at the bottom.

supplies
paper- basic grey
digi stamp- some odd girl
 stamp- paper smooches
ink - hero arts, tim hotlz distress ink
pencils- prismacolors
gamsol
twine- The Stringery

Do you ever get in a rut with your paper crafting?  What do you do when this happens?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I will be back tomorrow with another new project.  See you then. Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Wow, your coloring looks awesome, love the card! I definitely get in a rut sometimes so I try to changes things up a bit. I think the best way to break a rut is by forcing yourself to create, before you know it those creative juices will be flowing again.

This is such a great card, your coloring is awesome!

Sometimes when I'm in a rut, I try to mix it like you did with the coloring. Or I walk away from my desk for a while, and then after my break, I'm excited to craft again!
