Topic: Sketch Challenge
Continuing to work on winter and Christmas cards using OWH sketches. Don't forget - I will be featuring the best one on October 6 for an OWH bloghop for World Card Making Day. Be sure to check back then and I'll provide a link to the rest of the bloghop for you.
For the card today I worked with sketch 130:
Although I kept rigidly to the measurements for the sketch elements I deviated when it came to the embellishments. (Actually, I'm amazed that I lasted this long in the process without totally hammering a sketch!)
I wanted this to have a totally masculine feel so I started with a cozy plaid and a text background. All of the pictorial elements are Dazzles brand stickers. On the outline ones, I mounted them to colored paper first and trimmed them out before adding to the card. Each element got a bit of gold stitcker trim to ground it and I also added some shadow around each piece with W3 Copic marker. I may go back and add W5 as the deer still merge into the background too much for my taste.
No sentiment was added so this can be an 'anytime' winter card.
