It's another Sketch Tuesday over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog and our host Shannon has a fun one for us to try.
As with all of our sketches, please feel free to
rotate and/or flip the design to fit your needs.
My immediate thoughts went straight to butterflies and/or florals but I wanted to create something a bit different. How about toadstools?
I want to begin with the horizontal planks. I am just so thrilled at how they turned out! Believe it or not, these were cut from white cardstock and colored with the chisel end of a warm grey Copic marker. You'd swear it was patterned paper, wouldn't you? I just kept swiping the marker across the cardstock in horizontal motions, changing the amount of pressure I put to the paper. Following the lines of the sketch, I adhered them to a panel of light grey cardstock cut a bit smaller than A2 size.
The toadstool/mushrooms were also cut from white cardstock and colored in with Copics. I arranged them as indicated on the sketch, added a greeting cut from the same grey cardstock as the panel and adhered the panel to a white card base. I successfully resisted the urge to bling.
I invite you to visit our blog for more inspiration. We'd love to see your creation in our gallery.
