Happy Father's Day
Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Congratulations to last weeks winner and to our Top 3 cards.
Oh where oh where did all our entries and followers go to last week are you all on your summer holidays???
I think we had more Design Team cards than entries and that's really sad especially when I see other Sketch Challenges closing down and other challenges having 464 entries and 786 entries I so wish some of you would come and visit us and see our wonderful sketches and one amazing Design Team that comments on everyone's cards and puts so much work into our challenges.
Ok Kathie you've said your piece and onto our wonderful sketch this week design by very own
This is a very easy sketch and again great for using up scrap pieces of deign paper and card, apart from my background paper all of this card was make out of scraps.
Here's my card using the BBQ King and I'm so excited that I'm organised and have my husbands
Father's Day card made for him early as Father's Day isn't until the 1st Sunday in September here in New Zealand. That would really make a change for me being that organised and not making my card the night before the day.
This week our sponsor is
Deidre Mosher Bio
Wildly Whimsical and Seriously Sassy Art is definitely a trademark of Deidre Mosher.
I have been in the business of art for over 25+ years. Starting out as a fashion illustrator, moving into Art Direction, where I did everything from print to TV...and eventually I found my way back to illustration. My art is just plain fun and my love of color is clearly evident in the designs I create. I'm currently licensed with a variety of companies...my designs are used on craft products, greeting cards/paper products, kitchenware, business products and such.
I am first and foremost an...Illustrator and Designer. I am inspired by seriously sassy & bold colors, but also love the 'wow factor' of classic black and white designs. I'm crazy for stripes and dots, and they are a repeated theme in my work.
As an Illustrator, I work in many mediums and styles, ranging from the line art to pastels...having fun adapting them to the latest project. I am inspired by some my favorite artists ...Matisse's use of bold color, Klimt's knowledge of figures and lavish attention to detail, and Gauguin's wild approach to his subjects. They are all so 'awe inspiring'! I'm happiest when I am in my studio and starting a new project...making a mess, experimenting...and even throwing paint.
Any day in the studio is a great day!
I usually get an idea when I least expect it...so when the 'light bulb' goes off...I sketch and sketch and sketch...(hence the reason I buy tracing paper in bulk). I always begin with a pencil and paper, and it evolves from there. My favorite part of the process?? EVERYTHING...from beginning to end.
