Sketch challenges are one of my favourites. I have a hard time relinquishing control when it comes to colour, but I love the inspiration and motivation when I have a sketch to work with!
This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches inspired me so much I made three cards with it, but I'm only sharing one... for now ;)
Get Well Soon
Materials used in this card:
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White
Papers: Twitterpated DSP
Stamps: Delightful Dozen
Inks: Island Indigo
Embellishments: Island Indigo ruffled ribbon
Tools: 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop circle punch, 3/16" corner rounder
This is my Twitterpated "sampler" card! The Herringbone technique, which I first learned from a fantastic tutorial by my upline, is one of my absolute favourite techniques - and it a great one to use if you want to showcase a lot of designer series papers all at once :)
After I had assembled most of the card, I decided I wanted to change one of the papers I had used in the herringbone pattern, so instead of gluing over top, I popped up the new pieces on some dimensionals. It ended up creating a perfect little 'nook' for my sentiment.
Until next time - Happy stamping!
