Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #1

Good Tuesday Morning everyone!! Today's the day! The FIRST Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge !! I am so lucky to have been chosen as a Designer for this new group of FANTASTIC Card Artists. I can hardly wait to see the cards everyone made!!

Above is our first Sketch and below is my card I created using this Sketch Layout. I love the Sketch and I love the bright colors of this card. I had this super piece of cardstock and I had just drawn this flower image and I knew they had to go together on this card! It was destiny.

So not only is this a super exciting day because of this being the FIRST Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge it's double exciting because this is the FIRST time I have shown one of my personal drawings to all of you!! This and many more are being turned into Digi Stamps and will be available for purchase in the next couple weeks. Be sure to check back frequently for more McMahon Five Designs! I'm so excited!! So many new, fun adventures!

Here's what you need to know to play in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge:
  1. Anyone can play the weekly Tuesday Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
  2. Anything goes!!…Stamped, Digital, Collage, Vintage Prints, Hand drawn, Mixed Multi Media, scrap it, 3-D it, you name it!! I am sure it will be wonderful, I know you will be proud of your work and eager to link it up here. Any form of style/brand is accepted, as we do not endorse any one product line.
  3. Make it Your Own and feel free to take artistic liberties with the sketch provided, as long as you can still tell it was based upon the sketch. ie: rotate the sketch, add embellishments, change the shape of an individual piece, create a square card from a rectangle sketch, etc.
  4. The Shopping spree entries will be going on for 3 weeks, enter one or a total of 3 for each week. At the end of the three week period based on your number of entries a winner will be drawn on June 3rd.

Hi Sue! I love your drawing of the clematis and beautiful interpretation of the MMSC1 sketch! (One of my favorite perennial flowers!) I've got buds almost ready to bloom on mine. I SO envy those that can draw. Me? I can barely color! Lol!
