Card Sketch Wednesday #38-2016

Card sketches are a great way to jump start a card when you are a little stuck.  Here is a basic sketch to start-

Kim's creation -

I've evolved quite a bit when it comes to sketch challenges.  I used to try to duplicate them perfectly but now I find I try to push the envelope as much as possible by trying to change as much as I can while still maintaining the basic concept.  This sketch is no different.
I changed up the mats a bit, by making a double mat and embossing the white panel with the embossing folder.  The stripe is triple layers, with the white layer embossed.

The image, Valentine Critters by Inky Antics, was colored with Stampin' Up markers, and cut into a circle (as opposed to the rectangle).  The bow was highlighted with Sakura Clear Glaze Pen.  It was matted on a scalloped circle with a dot of the same glaze on each scallop.  In the lower corner I placed a small chocolate image on a double mat in lieu of the embellishment.  

I eliminated the greeting from the front of the card and included it with the sentiment using Accent Dot Writer, color matched to the brown Bazzill card stock.

See you tomorrow with another challenge project.  Kim from Katydid Cards.

As Kim pointed out, the sketches are a great starting point, but making them unique for you is great fun, so go have some fun today. -
