I'm always on the lookout for good sketches as that is the part I tend to struggle the most with on a card. As you know, my style is fairly clean and simple so this sketch was perfect! It's very much like a card that I cased for my Fall Frenzy class as well. This time though, I took a Christmas approach. For some reason I'm in a Christmas card kind of mood the past few days. My head says I should focus on Halloween first then fall/Thanksgiving due to the date (and I'm way behind on Halloween cards this year) but my heart is all about Christmas colors this week!
Stamps: Welcome Christmas, distressed dots, tiny tags
Paper: crumb cake, whisper white, cherry cobbler, in color DSP stack
Ink: Cherry cobbler, versamark
Accessories: Pewter EP, cherry cobbler dotted scalloped ribbon, border punch
I also went for a sort of bold color scheme too. I paired lucky limeade with cherry cobbler! Not super traditional but it works, especially with some crumb cake and clean whisper white. It's a bit vintage and a but clean. Anyway, here I go with the distressed dots again and I added the striped DSP panel to counter the dots. I like all the textures going on! The sentiment was embossed with our new pewter EP. It looks funny in the picture with my lighting but it's very pretty!
This was a fun sketch to play along with! Happy stamping!
