Yeah, I'm a full week behind now, and I don't see things getting better any time soon, as my markets start this Saturday, so I'm back to one-day weekends. I know, I know. I LOVE the markets, but I did like having that extra day all Winter to do some of these cool challenges. Hey, maybe I'll get my act together and find time during the week. HA! I crack myself up.
Here is LAST week's Sketchy Sunday challenge over on Tiff's blog:
And my take on it, which I also call "it seemed like a good idea at the time":
Now let me explain... Sometimes my ideas come in complete cards, and sometimes they come in fragments. This card is the result of a fragment, and I'm not so sure it worked. It started with an idea to make that SU flower out of First Edition papers. That's all I had, people. The whole idea stopped there.
For a background paper, I thought I'd rummage through my bag of papers from my last trip to the LSS, and I found that piece of Graphic 45 and thought: Kraft + black. So I inked the edges of the flower with Crumb Cake ink and matted a piece of the Graphic 45 paper on black.
Then I decided it needed some yummy black satin ribbon, and I did a two-sided approach to the wavy ribbon thing I showed you last night on my quilt card. Here's what I did:
See how it left a nice flat area to receive the flower? :) I found an old old old antique-y brad in my drawer and used it for the center of the flower. I like.
But then when I put that finished piece onto the Kraft card base, it was boooooring. THAT is when the Washi tape came out and I added a few strips of it to the card base.
I left off the sentiment because Tiff said we could change up the sketch if we wanted to, and I wanted to.
That's it. I might make a couple more of these since I've already cut up the paper. Then maybe I'll think about this week's sketch. ;/
Thanks for stopping by!
