A Little Sketchy
Topic: Sketch Challenge

Three things were accomplished with this one group of cards. 1) use up a pile of scraps I created when making the teapots 2) try making a pinwheel element I saw on another blog 3) use OWH sketch 120 (which is here:)


The 1" blocks used for the 'pinwheels' are from the scraps created from making the teapots. Some of the papers were reversible so it gave me more options to combine them. The first step was to match up the papers, using two for each of the pinwheels. Then I glued each of the pinwheels together and selected a complementary small strip then an acceptable large block. Black borders for the pinwheels and the sides of the blocksgot them ready for installation and then I selected colored card bases that would suit each one.

I ended up making 12 of these cards. This one is decorated with a black peel-off greeting and outline flower.


I flipped this one on its head because of the 'weight' of the floral paper. It also got a black peel-off greeting


This one, also upside down has a clear text sticker over the pinwheel


I used more of the brocade paper for the background on this one. More black peel-offs to decorate


I had bunnies cut out that I had started to use for the paper piecing for kids challenge the other day. Once I changed my mind on that I laid them out on the able top and this one jumped onto the card. He is popped up on foam tape. I also added matching pink strips down each side.


The butterfly for this one is left over from the paper piecing session. The colors went well with this pinwheel combination


This paper of fine diagonal stripes really changes the look. The text is a clear sticker.


Back to the original orientation. I found these golden dragonflies in my sticker stash and they really go well with the stripes on the bottom paper.


The decor for this pinwheel is a sticker left over from a long-ago cruise craft card project.

I think this pink striped paper looks like wallpaper on the card. The text is a clear sticker.


Another clear text sticker... love these on the pinwheels. The red and white stripes make this look vintage.


With the use of striped paper for the large block this looked like the whole card was striped. I added a black scallop border to create a break between the two. The text is again a clear sticker.


And off they go to OWH for soldiers to write  home on.
