Good morning! Happy Monday! I have a new project for you today using Reverse Confetti’s April Sketch For You To Try (and this is the final SFYTT! Jen has some new fun challenges up her sleeve, so stay tuned for that!). Here’s this month’s sketch:
And here’s my take on it:
One of the things I love about sketch challenges is that it can challenge you to step outside of your normal comfort zone. I will be the first to admit that I like straight lines and things centered and symmetrical. But this sketch has given me a new love for diagonal lines! I started with the Fun Times patterned paper pack, choosing two very different patterns. Because they were going to be sandwiched next to each other, I wanted to make sure that they complemented each other nicely, so I chose a small, almost neutral mint pattern, along with a bold pink and white stripe. I trimmed them down to 4×5.5″, then trimmed them at a diagonal using my trimmer and mounted them on my A2 card base.
Next, I stamped and die cut several of the flowers from Tall Blooms, then colored them with Copic markers in shades of pink and mint and lavender! (I totally used the colors in the Fun Times paper pack as my color inspiration!) I trimmed a small rectangle of white card stock, then added a greeting from Tall Blooms using black ink. I arranged the flowers as though the white rectangle were the vase or flower box, then adhered them using dimensional foam adhesive. Because my Tall Blooms were, in fact, tall, I moved the focal point from the sketch from the center to the bottom right of the card front. I liked the balance better that way. 🙂
The final step was to add a few sparkly gems to help fill out my bouquet!
Well, that’s all for this project. Now, it’s your turn! Create your own project using the SFYTT and Reverse Confetti goodies, then link it up to the final SFYTT challenge for your chance to win a $20 Reverse Confetti shopping spree! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous week!
