This week we have another sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts. If you are new to card making or if you have never participated in a sketch challenge before but would like to, I will explain what I do to create a card from the sketch.
First I make a model from scrap paper to figure out the measurements of the design. These are not necessarily the exact measurements, just what I think they might be, or what might work for me. That's the fun of a sketch challenge, the sketch serves to get you going.
When I am happy with the model measurements, I start to think about color. I just love all the Stampin' Up! green shades. This time I chose Pistachio Pudding, which made me think of Figgy Pudding in the Christmas Carole "We Wish You a Merry Christmas", so I was off on a Holiday themed card.
So, using the Pistachio Pudding card stock and coordinating InColor Patterened Paper I put this together.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Christmas Messages and it is found in the Holiday catalog. I also used an image from Mosaic Madness. I stamped first with VersaMark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I punched out the images with the matching Mosaic Punch. I hope you will join us this week! Happy Stamping.
