…Be ever in your favour.
Name that book!?
Quickie post cos my eyes have been streaming all day thanks to the start of hayfever season. My nose has been fine but my eyes.. Crikey, it’s like someone has turned on a tap and forgotten to turn them back off.
New challenge day over at Charisma Cardz and the theme is black, white plus one other colour.
My other colour is green
I have used the “Honour” digi stamp from Saturated Canary, one of our sponsors this week. She reminds me of Katniss, hence the sentiment.
I have coloured her with promarkers and the patterned paper is from MME.
Right, back to the tea bags over the eyes!
I’m joining in with the Inspired By challenge again this week. I had to think about what the card I was going to make and how the picture was inspiring me.
My initial thought was to make a pocket card but they’re not my favourite and I’m trying to hone the CAS thing this year so my next thought was to take the colours and geometric patterns from the pictures instead. This is what I came up with.
I actually followed one of the sketches on the Unscripted Sketches blog for this card. The papers are all from the MME Dilly Dally paper pad and I chose it for the colours which match the jacket in the pic (apart from the navy blue). I added some MME and Echo Park brads and some paper lace trim. The sentiment is by AmyR and I trimmed to red flower out from one of the sheets of paper. I finished the card off with some lines. I was going to doodle them but I thought that straight lines with a ruler would just enforce the geometric theme even more.
This is my entry into this week’s retro sketches challenge and I think I’ll be using this card layout a lot!
The sketch and my card
The papers on the card are by My Mind’s Eye and the sentiment stamp is by AmyR Designs. The crochet trim is Hero Arts and the twine MME. Gems are from stash. I think I’m kind of addicted to scattering gems around the place
