Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #11...

...and I couldn't pick just one card!

Good day!

I can't believe it's already time for our next Sketch Challenge at Atlantic Hearts!

Here was this week's sketch:

As soon as I saw the sketch, I had it in mind to pull out and use my brayer!  I am not a brayer expert AT ALL...I have only "dabbled" with it. 

I actually ended up with 3 different designs to share with you because I just couldn't choose one!  Maybe you can let me know which one is your favorite.

Sample #2:

Have a great week and I would like to also wish my Grandpa a very HAPPY 89th Birthday, which happens to be today! :)



  1. I like sample #2! Great Job Jess! & happy birthday to your Grandpa! :D

  2. Each card is great! I can't choose between the whale (love the ocean layers) and the first one with the flourish, where the eye is drawn to the sentiment by the lightest shade.

    1. Thank you! I loved the colors the best in the Whale card, but still couldn't decide between the 3! :)

  3. I played with my brayer too for this one but it did not work for me, but yours did, amazing job, I love all of them!

    1. Thanks Brandi! I hope to play with the brayer a bit more in the future :)

  4. Great cards, and I love each one for different reasons. The whale is super cute though, so I think if I had to choose one, the whale would be it.

  5. Ooooh.. all three of these are wonderful! I don't think I have a favourite, love them all!

  6. Well, I came here to tell how much I loved your card, and now I have 3 to choose from.......Too hard. I love them all
