The Friday Mashup #65 with a Retro Sketch!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is my last appearance as Guest Designer this month at The Friday Mashup.  I have had an absolute ball serving alongside such talented paper artists.  Thank you so much for the opportunity!  (I'm posting this a wee bit early to make a challenge deadline, so my apologies if I spoil your Friday surprise!)

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project with " Punch Art ".
  2. Or Make a project featuring your " Favorite Animal ".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project " with an Animal made from Punches ".

This is the first week I feel I "failed" at the challenge, since my submitted project didn't actually MASH!  Oh, don't get me wrong!  I did make a punch art card.  But I thought it looked like a grade schooler's art project, so I didn't use it!!  Instead, I focused on my favorite animal, which is puppies!!!

My pup was colored with water color pencils and blended with my Blender Pen.  I added a bit of shimmer to his tag with my gold Atyou Spica glitter pen.  I also followed along with the sketch over at Retro Sketches for this card.

Don't tell anyone, but here is a peek at the punch art card I didn't use:

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!


  1. Love it - beautiful pup! Just stopped by from SC, I hope you stop by my blog and follow me too:)

  2. Ok, BOTH your cards are too cute! I certainly don't think that looks like a grade school art project, it's adorable! Love your projects this week :)

  3. Your cards are so cute Sheri! I love those puppies, you've done a great job! Your coloring is fantastic.

  4. Sheri, BOTH your cards are great! The puppies are so cute and I love how you made the original one look like a doghouse!

    Its been a pleasure having you as a guest designer at The Friday Mashup!

  5. Such sweet puppy cards (your punch art one made me smile!) - love the dog house effect. Thanks for being a great Guest Designer on the Friday Mashup team!
