Topic: Sketch Challenge
Still working 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 today's card I chose sketch 101:
There are some times when the materials tell you what they want, despite your plans. In this case I was happy to go on their little ride, because they seemed to know what they were doing!
I started by knowing I wanted the banner to house the letters from a sticker set I had on hand. Then I found the bird print (cut down from a 12 x 12 page). After that it was a matter of shifting the elements so none of the important stuff would be covered up and weilding various glues to hold it all in place.
I provided some definition to the banner by using a little sketch black line as a border. Then I added faux stitching across the top of the banner and around the two printed papers. A bit of scrapper's floss was glued in to the top of the banner. The text sticker on the small panel is from the same set as the MERRY letters.
Cute, cute, cute!
