Hi Oddies!! It's the first of the month and you know what that means?!! A brandie new challenge over at the Some Odd Girls Challenge blog
! This month's challenge is one of my favorites...a sketch challenge! I have been asked in the past if I think that using a sketch somehow takes the creativity away from making a card/layout/project. Honestly, when I first started crafting years ago, I sort of gave thought to that. But as the years have gone on I have started to rely on a sketch every time I create as my jumping off point and I let my creativity go from there. Sometimes I interpret the sketch literally and sometimes you can see the basic elements of the sketch layered throughout the other elements of my project. So no, I think sketches are an amazingly helpful tool...especially on those days when the creativity is on the low side. (wink!)
So without further ado...here is this month's sketch challenge:
I have used the crazy adorable Smell The Flowers - Tia
clear set for my project today. I inked her with Momento ink and colored her in with my Copics.
I paper pieced her dress but colored the trim using my markers.
After coloring, I used my circle Nesties to cut her out and to create a matte from chocolate brown, textured Bazzill cardstock. My patterned papers are all from MME - Fine and Dandy and my cardstock is from Bazzill. I used my MFT Die-namics to embellish this card along with some stitching, jute twine, baker's twine, mini clothes pin and some self-adhesive pearls.
I finished off the interior keeping it bright and simple:
I do hope you come over to the SOG Challenge Blog
and play along with us and this super fabulous sketch! Thanks for popping by today!
Your cards are the best!! I really love how you take the time to decorate the inside.. I don't see that very often, and it's such a delight each time I do see it. LOVEEEEE it!
You sure as heck made this sketch your own. Love the pennants and sentiment as well as the embellishments. Your skin tones are excellent too.
I love the banner and the tag sticking out - great take on the challenge! Love the stripes on her dress too. :D
Awesome Meredith! I love these colours and that banner is so cute!
