SSW216-149 Paper Addictions


It's a bright one isn't it?  What can I say, I was going for the look of the Mexican flag.

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another sketch challenge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week I'm pleased to say that Jacqueline Mathews from Paper Addictions has returned to sponsor us.  I love her quirky images.   I used her "moochas gracias" cow image.  Here's a bit more about her:


My name is Jacqueline Mathews and I am a crafter and designer. I love paper, pens, doodling, stamping and above all designing. I have a degree in fine arts with an emphasis in graphic design. I worked in the graphic design industry for many years and quit 15 years ago to become a stay at home mom for my 3 kids. Now that the kids are older and don’t need me as much, I am reinventing myself and have decided that I wanted to create my own line of digital stamps. I have dabbled in rubber stamping and became a “Stampin’ up!” demonstrator and had a blast, but thought it would be more fun to create my own stamps. I decided digital was the way to go. It is affordable for the customer and for the designer. I now have a digital stamp shop on Etsy called “PaperAddictions”. I would love to create my own line of rubber stamps someday, but for now I am testing my designs out in my shop to see if anyone likes them. I am pleasantly surprised that I have gotten a good response to the images I have designed so far. This positive response has motivated me to create more images in the future.

The sketch is a blast from the past.  If you would like to see what the designers did with it last time, click here.  We'd love to see what YOU can do with this sketch.  Don't forget to comment so you are eligible to win the awesome prize of any 5 items from the Paper Addictions shop!!
