The sketch challenge is one of my favorite challenges. I love to make the sketch work for ME. You can turn the sketch on it’s side, right or left. You can turn the sketch upside down! You can make the sketch fit 12×12, or make it work in an 8.5×11 layout. This month, I wanted to show you how I used the sketch to make a simple thank you card with the brand new Echo Park papers.
And here is how my card ended up:
First, I turned the sketch 90 degrees and made the right side the new bottom. Since I wasn’t using photos, I used a strip of patterned paper behind the “title” section. I used rub-on strips instead of stitching, and dew drop embellishments instead of the butterflies in the sketch. I have become addicted to those dew drops and they seem to be one of my new go-to embellishments! I was able to use one of my other favorite items – Tattered Angel’s Glimmer Mist to make my own custom background cardstock and ric-rac. Both started out white. I also spritzed the inside of the card and then used a boarder punch to shorten and embellish the front cover and give a peek into the pretty pink inside. I hope this inspires you to alter the way you use a sketch. Try to use this month’s sketch in a slightly different way than it’s presented. I think you will have as much fun as I did!
