I had to do another one for Beate's sketch challenge (see my last post). I just love working with sketches and use them quite often when I am card making and pretty much always when scrapbooking. I like that you have the layout all ready for you and you just have to decide on pictures/stamps, papers and embellishments.
This card is made from the same sketch as the last card but is a very different look. This is what I like about sketches, you can look at the layout but change it to your own style.
This card is a 4 1/4" square base in tempting turquoise. I used the Polka Dots & Petals paper and used that as the inspiration for the colors (that is why I like working with pattern paper, one more decision made for me). The other color I pulled from this paper was the So Saffron which is matted behind the yellow flowers.
For the mouse and the squirrel I stamped them on the white first and then stamped them again on the patterned papers and cut their shirts out (when I showed Joe he said I was crazy for cutting those out. LOL!!). I colored the balloons with markers and cut them out and used dimensionals to pop them up.
I really had fun with this sketch and am already working on a third card with it! Hmm....that just got me thinking I bet you could use this for a scrapbooking layout. I might just have to try this. I'll keep you posted.
