Topic: Sketch Challenge
I am enjoying working from sketches on this self-assigned mission. I hope the pleasure holds out!
Today I worked with OWH Sketch 07:
You can see that the original idea was to use 5 different papers across the span but I liked it much better with a symetrical look so that is what I used. I have few stamps that use a vertical sentiment but this one is large enough to be a focal point and I had it already stamped on 3 different bits of cardstock. These gave me the color keys to start selecting papers. I decided the center of each one would be a strip from a single piece of patterned paper and cut it apart into color range strips.
I started with the blues. These were all out of the scrap bins and look nice together without being matchy-matchy.
Yellow was the next sentiment color. I chose to go with a range of values from pale to vibrant and the blues in the floral calm the piece a little.
The last strip of feature paper was in the red range and my sentiment was stamped on a creamy white. I went to the scrap bins for reds but it was all too nerve-jangling so I opted for cream and black instead and let the interest all be in the patterns.
I brought the red back in as the card base color.
