Spread Sunshine – Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

April 15, 2009 at 5:50 pm 3 comments


I thought I’d actually be tired of stamping since I’ve been going like gangbusters over the past couple of weeks. I think it’s just me trying to avoid working – I’m procrastinating, but I need to do some very focused work over the next few days for sure.

I decided to try my hand at the Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge (see sketch challenge below in one of Cathy’s recent entries). I used a Basic Black card base and layered it with Stampin’ Up DSP. I used the Dandelion from Hero Arts as my main image and sponged Summer Sun and More Mustard using a circle tempate. I also used a Hero Arts sentiment and layered them both with a basic black panel. I used my nesties to cut out the patterned paper from DCWV and the black circles. I finished off the card with some prima flowers and a brad. I like the way the bright yellow contrasts with the black & white. Thanks for having a look.
