Making A Card Sketch My Own

By | 11/12/2019

Have you ever looked at a card sketch and felt no inspiration at all?

That happened to me today when I sat down to look at this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

In all honesty, it is the PERFECT card sketch for using up your pretty paper scraps or Washi tapes.

I just wasn’t feeling it until I pulled out my Altenew watercolor pan set and created a very colorful rainbow background!

It’s raining and snowing here and I think I just needed a rainbow of sorts.

I’ve changed the scale of the elements of the card sketch, but I think that I have used the layout in my own creative way.

Here is this week’s sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

I can think of some fabulous background stamps I have that would work with this too.  How about that wood plank stamp for example?

I had a piece of watercolor paper sitting on my desk.  I pulled out my wide, flat watercolor brush and spritzed the pans of color in my Altenew pan set.  Then I just selected a few colors and pulled them across the paper in my painted version of straight lines.  The colors blended together and gave me a background that I loved!

I added a scrap of yellow die cut with my MFT Stax circles dies and I die cut the sentiment using the Concord & 9th Little Thoughts Dies that I got for free with a qualifying order.

I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins flowing across the card diagonally over the sentiment in a variety of sizes and types.  I added it to a navy card base and that was that.

So simple and done in a flash with things just sitting on my desk.

    Kim I love your rainbow card! Also like the suggestion to use washi tape for this sketch, I hadn’t thought of that.
