Moving on in my list of challenges, I played the current Deconstructed Sketch:
and made this:
Why yes, you do see those Fancy Pants True Friend paper again. This sketch would be great for double-sided paper, which sadly this is not. I cut off the corner of the green piece and added a piece of the orange. Don't forget to round the corner of the orange piece before you stick it down. *ahem*
For the flourish-y part of the sketch I chose to use one of my MFT mini doilies and put a white circle in the center for a sentiment. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Once again I was on the hunt for a teeny tiny sentiment that fit in the available real estate. I chose a sentiment from a Paper Smooches set that has the three words you see in the circle and a scripty love. The three words fit nicely into the circle, but I had a challenge with the scripty love part of the sentiment. To work, it really needed to overlap the doily, and that wasn't happening with a stamp.
Plan B: use the love word from a die set. YES! I used the Simon Says Stamp Small Love You and it was perfect. It was even about the same size as the stamp. I cut it a few times from white and once from a paper in the paper pack, layered them, and they looked great. I did have to shift the whole thing up and left for things to fit. I also trimmed down the card to 4 1/4 x 5.
After I did all of that, it still looked like it wanted something more, so I trimmed a sliver of paper and added it under the scripty love. The whole thing was mounted on a Hero Arts Wet Cement card base.
It's safe to come out now. I've put away that paper pack, and I promise I'll use something else for a bit. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to do what I love and go make some more cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
I used that same love die today.ReplyDelete
My crafting area is in shambles, I have to make hubs some lunch, proof read a handful of pages, host a poker tournament, and then just then I might get to make another card. What has all this got to do with your card...well I've spent a bit of time with you today visiting your blog posts, and I thought I would chat up a bit. Its cold out and I have a touch of cabin fever is likely the real reason!
I like that your version is not a square card...not sure why but square cards bug me for some reason.
Love your take on this sketch. :-)ReplyDelete
They need to make more sentiments that fit well in circles. That's my theory. I really like this card and how you faked the double-sided-ness of that paper.ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous. I love your sentiment placement and that fantastic doily! Thanks for joining us at the Deconstructed Sketch!ReplyDelete
