This week's sketch is another one that has the potential to be a one layer (or mostly one layer) card! When I originally designed this one, the idea was to draw a thin-lined rectangle on the main layer, leaving a gap for the sentiment. The image element can be placed in a gap as well, or popped up.
Here's my card. I was in the mood for a birthday card. Originally I was going to just have the one red balloon, but it felt a little too lonely. So I added the orange one. And then I just couldn't deal with having an even number, so the third yellow balloon was added. The little stars are from the same stamp set and I thought they added some fun interest. They also helped cover a few stray ink boo-boos. It never fails hey? Making a one layer card and you get some stray ink transfer somewhere. Grr! Embossed stars to the rescue!
Stamps: Birthday Balloons (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink: Archival Black, Versamark, Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup
Accessories, etc.: Micron .5 pen, silver embossing powder.
Here is Chera's card:
Hey Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week!!! Here's my take on this week's sketch card! It was recently my husband's birthday and this was the card I made for him!! Gave me an opportunity to showcase some Concord and 9th plaid background!! I just can’t get enough! Wanted to keep it masculine and I find a neutral tone on tone good for that!! For the white panel in the middle I wanted it to say something about birthdays so I found an old wplus9 set and stamped birthday wishes diagonally on the there in wplus9 fairy dust ink, so it was super light but still visible! I then die cut the numbers using a set from Paperytrey ink along with the bold sentiment on the bottom as well.
I often forget to make him a birthday card so he felt extra loved this year ;)
Hope you feel inspired! I look forward to see what you create!!
