Whimsical Wednesday and a TSG Challenge

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

A happy Wednesday to you all!

It's time for another Whimsical Wednesday challenge! This week's sketch is from little Jack Diedrich and it's a real easy one so you all have no excuses not to play! ;)

And as an incentive, up for grabs is a grab bag of Unity singles sweetly donated by the matriarch of this challenge blog, Mama Jess Diedrich!! Woohooo! You can check out the sketch over at the Whimsical Wednesday blog this morning and leave some love for this week's featured daredevil Heather "No Brown" Schlatter! (Love ya girl!)

The sketch is pretty rectangular and reminded me of an ATC (Artist Trading Card), so I decided to combine two challenges this week. The There She Goes challenge (TSG40) this week is to create an artist trading card, so I created one for the center of my Whimsical Wednesday card. :) Pretty smart of me really.... LOL!

I used the recently released Chemistry set from There She Goes since the images are the perfect size for ATC's. I have never really done an ATC before and didn't really know where to start, but after seeing the amazing examples that Maki and Jessica created, I realised that all you need to do is create a miniature card! :) Really sorry about the bad photo. These dark winter days are seriously detrimental to my card making! Day light savings couldn't come soon enough!

Now check out what the amazing Daredevils have created with this challenge:

And then check out what Maki and Jessica did with the TSG ATC challenge!! Amazing stuff!

If you'd like to play along with this week's Whimsical Wednesday sketch challenge, and be in with a chance to win the grab bag of Unity singles, just leave a link to your card in the Mr Linky at the bottom of today's post. And if you want to play along with this week's There She Goes ATC challenge, and possibly win a gift certificate to the TSG store, link your creation at the bottom of this blog post.

Sandra, I had to take a double look and blow up your ATC - the way it was put together looked like one layer vs. layered. WOW! Amazing job. I love it. I can't wait to get this set to make some ATCs with it as well.
