Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. Confession – I am 41 and I don’t think I’ve ever cooked Thanksgiving all by myself…until now. Fingers crossed for me :)
It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #53 – sketch.
And here is my take:
I decided to use stamping on this card to keep the layers down.
The pine bough at the top didn’t stamp fully. Instead of starting over, I filled-in, free-hand, with a marker of very similar color. Even in person, you’d have to know to look for it to find it. I’m not complimenting my skill, rather, encouraging you to try it next time a stamp doesn’t fully impress (if it doesn’t work, you haven’t lost anything).
Since I stretched the sketch to be an A2 instead of square, I chose to “add” the space at the bottom and not center the Joy panel. Also, my wheel stamps are the same size width, but I think visually the difference in color and density helps add weight.
Very simple card – and I’m quite happy with it!
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
