I was selected to be a Guest Designer for the CAS challenge at SCS. And I got the first week (good thing I like working under a tight deadline, lol). This week’s challenge is a sketch based on Denise’s card (cas83).
When I first saw her card, this leaf card came right to mind. I love it when tools make life easy! With the leaf die and impression plate, this card came together quickly. The layout is a little different from the original, but I think you can still see it: the 4-square leaf is pretty obvious, but the twine knot is in the same position as the ghost; and the sentiment under it all.
While I feel the first card qualifies as Clean and Simple, I know others may not. So I made another card. This one is a one-layer card. It was so fun to make (I love bright colors). I’ve had the arrow set since it came out but hadn’t gotten around to using it. Again, the sketch is there, though a little muddier this time. The circle with “10” in it is in place of the ghost, and this time the sentiment is off-set to the left like the original. Even though there aren’t 4 arrows, I still feel they fit the sketch.
For the final card I still kept close to the layout, but it is flipped horizontally – the witch being the ghost and the sentiment hanging off the right-side instead of left.
I don’t think I’ve ever done more than 1 card for a specific challenge before. Great sketch Denise!
