Here we are at another week, another challenge!
I LOVE sketch challenges, I think they are my favourite, and Im sure Ill squeeze in another entry this week for this challenge.
I think I love sketch challenges because I'm a fairly simple girl, and go for quite straightforward designs in my card making. I do quite a bit of layering, so the sketches usually suit my style, and when I play around with someone elses design (say, in a sketch) I always surprise myself by how much I like something a bit different.
This weeks sketch, is VERY much my style. Here is the sketch-
and here is my entry-
I'm absolutely going to have another go at this sketch, It was really fun, and I'm very pleased with results!
"up and away" dies
Stampin Up vellum
"Avant-garden" stamp set (sentiment)
Designer series paper-carried away
melanic woven ribbon (silver)
Silver Foil card stock.
(3 of these items I received free during our sale-a-bration promotion- ON NOW!)
As you might see in the photo, I cut the Hot air balloon from the "Up and away" dies in vellum. I glued it on using a technique I posted here a few weeks ago-velum can be notorious for being difficult to glue on to a project-well....It used to be, but, using this technique, it's not any more!
see that post HERE
I loved this card so much, I made another-
|Velumn Hot air balloon from the "up and away" dies|
In this card I also used Vellum for the hot air balloon, pairing it with a smokey slate pattern out of the same designer series paper, "Carried away". I paired that with peekaboo peach, and silver foil. The sentiment comes from the Paisleys and Posies stamp set out of the holiday catalog.
I LOVED playing with the "Up in the air" bundle. I actually made more cards, but Ill show you them tomorrow!
