Hi everyone - did you miss us? We enjoyed our much needed break, but it's a new year. We're back to the swing of things and are starting things off with a easy peasy challenge: a sketch.
None other than our talented Gayatri has put this together. So make sure to go leave her some love!
Mine is super quick. I was looking for a graphic look. I also loved the paper that I found floating on my desk. Isn't it great when we find a starting point?
Stamps: (Background Builders - Round in Circles; All Occasion Sentiments #3) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink; (Corey Add-on Kit - pattern paper) Studio Calico
Ink: (Creative Color Pigment Ink - Winter, Ocean) Mama Elephant; (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Wood Veneer - Sundrifter) Studio Calico
I wanted to add layer on the pattern paper by stamping a bunch of circles from the Background Builder set. I love how Winter matches the paper so well and adds a subtle piece of interest. To match the sketch a bit, I picked another design from that same set and stamped it a more bolder Ocean color.
Finally I just added a sentiment and decided to "scatter" a few wood veneer pieces that also had triangles & circles to match the stamping and the paper. It felt quite good to go about the card without much plans and just "throw" stuff onto the card front.
Check out the rest of the girl's cards and leave them a sweet comment or two. Remember you don't have to use all the colors - any or all as an inspiration.
