Welcome to World Cardmaking Day fun at the CLASSroom! I'm excited to be bringing you a sketch challenge to get you creating today. Everyone loves a sketch challenge, right? I love creating sketches and I especially love a sketch challenge so I hope you'll join me and have some fun!
Here's the sketch...
I hope you enjoy this sketch. It's a square card that has many possibilities. I can't wait to see how you interpret it. Please feel free to turn it or flip it to suit your needs.
For my sample card for this sketch, I decided to put together a few of my favorite things. I love stamping with white ink on Kraft cardstock. It's such a classic and subtle look and isn't the Hero Arts Lace Background stamp stunning?
I was originally thinking patterned paper for the squares when I designed the sketch but decided to use squares of Printed Canvas to add texture to the design. The Ultimate Glue works really well for adhering this canvas to the card design.
To add in the circle to my design, I've traced a punched circle in pencil onto my card and then stitched over it. You can also try hand-stitching for this sketch detail or use your imagination.
To add color to my design, Glimmer Mist is perfect for altering flower embellishments. I love being able to customize them to each project.
The sentiment on this card uses both chipboard letters and stamping. I only wanted part of the sentiment (the word friend) and so I very carefully just inked up the one word and stamped it onto the canvas. To get a perfectly crisp impression when stamping on canvas and other fabrics, try using the Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. I find it works the best of any ink I've tried for this.
