Hello Dear Friends!
It is time once again for the new Sketch Reveal
Today's reveal is #121and here's the sketch ...
You will have until April 28th to join in our challenge and please be sure to review our rules.
One rule I'd like to mention is: your entry can be shared with only 3 additional challenges in order for you to qualify for our prize.
We have the wonderful Dies R Us as our sponsor this challenge.
And the prize is a $20 gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.
Here are a few additional photos of my card creation:
Several of the dies came from the Dies R Us Store. Please be sure to pop over and check 'em out!
I am LOVING these sketches!
I know I've said it before but I will say it again!
If your mojo is lacking ... just try one of our sketches and you'll be amazed at how quickly your creativity will 'kick into gear' and when you're finished you will have a card creation I'm sure you'll be thrilled with!!!
A couple little helpful hints to share today!
I've used both 'purchased' pattern paper AND 'digital' (printed) pattern paper on today's card.
By modifying the color of my 'digital' paper, I could color coordinate it with my store bought paper.
The Crafty Secrets Embossed Digital Paper I have used is actually YELLOW but by modifying the color in WORD, I was able to match it almost perfectly with the DCWV 'Coral Couture' store bought pattern paper.
Secondly, notice the 'cupping' of the leaves.
You can achieve this at least 2 different ways that I'm aware of.
1 - on a soft, molding mat, drag your stylus down each petal from the TIP of the leaf inward ... OR
2 - using a flat pair of tweezers, place your tweezers down the center of your leaf then with your thumb and forefinger, squeeze the leaves inward toward each other.
By shaping the leaves just a little, it's amazing how much life and realism it will give your creation.
Challenges to share in:
