There's nothing like sipping a thick milkshake in a shaped green-tinted glass through a long red straw. When you are close to the bottom simply pour the rest of your treat from the still cold stainless steel mug that the waitress served with the shake. Gotta love those vintage diners.
January marks a new sketch designer, Pamela, and guest designers Candice, Julie and Emily at Skipping Stones Design. I invite you to take a peek at the inspiration over on the blog and try your hand at the sketch challenge as well, there's a great prize up for grabs!
It's confession time. I was totally stumped with this sketch, not sure why. I just froze. After I thawed I made two cards that I was completely unhappy with. So much so that they ended up in the good ol' garbage. I needed some other inspiration, so I turned to the challenge at Paper Variety. The pattern from Pumpkin Seed Sentiments is so much fun, especially stamped with black ink onto white! Add a hint of pink and I think it is very reminscent of the retro diner cafes.
