Yesterday I told you I would be doing a new sketch. Here it is. It was a little different for me as it was a square card. I don’t normally do square cards because the envelope to mail it costs more money being an odd size. I started with a 4″ square and it was too small for the sketch so I switched to a 5″ square. This is another one that is not my normal comfort zone but I like how it turned out. I wanted to try some of the in colors since I hadn’t used them for a while. It his a good layout but I think I might try adapting the sized to fit an invitation size card. What do you think?
I read on a blog that she does not cut out the antennae on her bugs and butterflies. She stamps the stamp on her paper and on a scrap. She then cuts out the scrap and glues it on top of the image stamped on her card. The stamped image has the antennae so it looks like the one you cut out has them also. You can choose to pop the cut out image or glue it right over the stamped image. I had also stamped the flower on the red circle with an ink pad. You could not see the stamped image so I went over it with my marker so you can see it now.
I used the sketch from PoeticArtistry
and made this card. Here is the sketch and my card.
Stamps: Time Well Spent Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Red, River Rock, Wild Wasabi – textured and plain Ink: Real Red, River Rock, Wild Wasabi Accessories: Real Red marker, aqua painter, red gingham ribbon (Michael’s), 1″ circle punch, sponges, dimensionals
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking!
