Robyn, at My Pink Stamper, has challenged us to create something using a new technique.
When I was reading the blogs of other participants in Robyn’s challenges I read about someone who had used a sketch to create their card. I thought they meant that they sketched it out, like a drawing, but that’s not what they meant. Upon further research, I turned up plenty of sketches!! They are basically templates for laying out your cards. This was just what I needed to challenge myself a bit. I was getting stuck in a comfortable rut. Plus, I needed to redeem myself from that burned donut card that I made yesterday. Embarrassing!
I followed this sketch:
Then…I just created my own thing following the rules of the sketch…basically, it called for 1 circle and a 1/2 circle. Perfect because I always gravitate to squares and rectangles.
It says “Make a Wish”
It was tough to get a good photo of this card and I really think it is prettier in person. I made it for my SIL’s b’day tomorrow. She loves butterflies.
