Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #126

Written by: iwona    5 Comments

Ready for a new sketch?? I promise it’s on my agenda to catch up with the comments on the previous sketch entries, but I wanted to post this first before its overdue status is still fairly acceptable *wink*. I felt like layers today as I wanted to cut into some new, delicious papers. Enjoy!

So here’s what I’ve done. I dug into the papers from the Hello Sunshine 6×6 pad by Pink Paislee. I die cut one of the papers (the chalkboard style) with the brand new Polaroid frame die from Penny Black, making the sentiment fit within the frame. I wrapped some Maya Road Shine Gold twine around the card and arranged a few die cuts found in Kaisercraft Collectables packs, around (Summer Breeze) and in the frame (Sweet Pea) – including the adorable deer that I’ve been waiting for a fitting project to put it on.

This card merges woodland and intense Summery, almost Hawaiian themes, in a way that makes me giddy. I always try to reach for the elements that would spice up the boring, rigid lines of the sketch and (hello!) florals do the job good enough in most cases. I love the way the leaves and flowers seem to be sprouting from behind the frame. I can’t wait to see what you make with it!


If you would like to play along:

– You’re kindly asked to save the sketch image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
– Share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget below, so that I can come and check it out!
– A new sketch is posted every other Saturday night (ideally but I might be late at times), and the link widget is open for two weeks. However, you’re welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section and I’ll pop in to see it.
– Every now and then, I’ll be inviting one person who uses my sketch, to join me for the next one!
