Topic: Sketch Challenge
I love a sketch that generates so many ideas for use. Here's OWH sketch 125:
I had a lot of ideas about what to put in those four boxes but I narrowed it down to just three. First, I pulled a sheet of gold Dazzles butterflies and placed them on grey script-covered rectangles. After combining with several coordinating papers I added gold Dazzles script and a line of 'nail head' stickers.
Next I chose some fun frog stickers and placed them on a large dot paper bordered in black. A green background with a dotted stripe starts off calmly enough but that one jumping frog knocks his block out of line with the others. I carried that up into the stamped sentiment by making it askew as well and then added two green teardrop rhinestones to form a heart.
I went from zany to classy by using vellum stickers of pansies on pale striped paper. These were banded in green to go with the subtle background paper and the band of green printed paper. Everything else is banded in shades of purple like the pansies. I added a stamped sentiment and a hand drawn purple outline.
I won't make quick progress on the sketch self-challenge if I make multiples on many of them but it does add more quickly to the stash of cards to send to Operation Write Home.
