It's Wednesday, which means it is time for a "What If? Wednesday Sketch". You have two weeks to enter your card using the sketch posted on the Repeat Impressions blog...The House That Stamps Built. All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate. I hope you'll play along with us.
This week's sketch looks like this:
Once again, I'm a sketch rebel. I just had to flip it, change the shape of the main focal point and omit one of the details. I guess that's how I roll, LOL. For my card, I stamped the Repeat Impressions image of "Ornament Frame" (3814-K) onto a scrap of patterned paper from The Paper Studio with Marvy black dye. I cut around the ornament with Cutterbee scissors. Then I stamped the image again with Marvy black dye onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the ornament top with Copic markers and cut. I adhered the top to The Paper Studio stamped image. Then using some black ribbon, I tied the ornament like it was hanging, and tied a bow (eliminating one of the smaller details of the sketch). I "hung" it from a panel of patterned paper from K&Company that I framed in black. Along the side I placed several snowflakes and stars cut from Cuttlebug dies. I added three small red buttons on some of the snowflakes.
A definite departure from my normal cards, but nonetheless fun to make. The more I think about this card, I'm thinking of trying the same layout/ornament on a panel of craft. That might have a nice look to it.
