Creative Scrappers always publishes beautiful sketches for us to play with, and their first sketch of 2013 is no exception.
I've stuck fairly rigidly to it because I love it just the way it is. My LO is about one of the dear friends to whom we had to say goodbye
when we left Australia.
My Bo Bunny Apple Cider 6"x6"
paper pack matched the small amounts of colour in the photos perfectly,
without making it look autumny. Because it isn't autumn at all, it's
March and still high summer in Australia.
While I'm here, I'd also like to show you a winter birthday card. I had a play with sponging, which I'm not 100% happy with yet. Maybe I need to invest in some fancy sponges rather than using make-up sponges. I think I'm managing better with masking than I usually do though. You can't tell from the photo, but I stamped and inked straight onto the card without making a mess! The black frame has been cut out and stuck on around it purely so that the bottom of the stamp has some definition. I'm just realising even as I type that could have done that so much more easily if I'd just stamped the image onto a difference piece of card and matted it on the black - what a dunce!
I'm entering it into these challenges:
Charisma Cardz: monochrome
Creative Card Crew: snow and ice (see the Stickles?)
Less Is More: black, white and a dash of colour (I hope there isn't too much)
Stampavie: blue and white
