Week 230 - Sketch

Happy Saturday Limettes

We have a long awaited sketch for you this week!

The essence of all our challenges is simplicity ... so please remember that 
all important 'white space' and keep your design Clean and Simple!

Here are our examples for you this week... although as ever there will be
additional inspiration on the personal blogs of the DT...so do pay them a visit.

My card is nearly white on white.  I've used a Cuttlebug script embossing folder 
and added a Memory Box butterfly and a Mama Elephant sentiment. 
 The base layer of the butterfly is cut from white glittery paper.

This is an image from the internet over-stamped with an Artemio manuscript stamp 
and then coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment was computer generated in
Passions Conflict and Andalus fonts and the flourish is a die cut from MFT.
The apertures were cut with Simon Says Stamp stitched, rectangular dies.


I've turned the sketch on it's head with the smaller panel at the top
and also used landscape rectangles rather than portrait. The images are from
Paper Smooches: Briny Blue coloured using Stabilo Markers and water, 
then twinkled with Winks of Stella and Glossy Accents.
Rectangles die-cut using MFT Die-Namics pierced rectangle dies
and the 'birthday wishes' sentiment from Clearly Besotted


I die cut a curved rectangle from the top panel which was popped up 
on 3D foam strips after adhering some hot pink cardstock to the card base
 to show through the aperture.  I die cut the flower from white cardstock 
using 'Small Posh Outline' die from Poppy Stamps, adhered this 
over the aperture and accented with some clear Wink of Stella.  
I then used the Paper Smooches 'Thanks' word die to cut the sentiment 
from the same hot pink cardstock.

We hope you enjoy the sketch and we look forward to seeing
what you make of it this week. Please take some time to visit your fellow
entrants and leave some kind feedback ... Everyone loves a comment or two!

Happy Crafting!
