Today I am bringing you a twist on a sketch. If you been reading my blog for awhile you will know that I love using sketches as a starting point for my cards. Well I also love playing along with the challenges at both Shopping Our Stash – their challenge is to create with Butterflies and at the Cards in Envy Challenge; this time around they have a 1 layer challenge going on and this made me ask a question.
“Could I make a 1 layer card using a card sketch?”
Of course it would have to be the right sketch to do this experiment with but would it really be possible? And sketch #512 from Sketch Saturday looked like a possible candidate.
So the challenges I have chosen to combine these challenges
Once I found these challenges I then had to go looking for an image that I could use in this experiment. So I went looking in my images and found Pure Prairie Bouquet by Power Poppy and I thought it would work well. So I printed out the digital image and then set to work on how to turn this sketch into a 1 layer card. And this is the result:
I am really happy with how this turned out. I hope that you like my interpretation on the sketch. The circular element I coloured with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and I used a warm grey pencil around the outside of the image to give the illusion of a layer being their. I heat embossed the 70 with some black glitter powder and I called the card finished.
Thanks again for stopping by and looking at my project. Please let me know what you thought of my take on the sketch and keeping it to 1 layer. And as always before you go I want to leave you with this thought:
Change is hard but it’s necessary. We don’t like going through any kind of change but I think at least 95% of the time we are the better for it.
Have a Happy Blessed Crafty Kind of Day,
