Guest who's Guest Designing at CAS(E) This Sketch
? Yup, it's me! I was so excited when Chrissy
emailed me and asked it I would like to. There was not a second's hesitation on my part. Then. But when she sent me Leigh
's sketch I wondered if I could even come up with something.
I'm trying so hard not to take sketches and photos so literally anymore and so I had to think this one over for a while. And then I got an order from Altenew and in playing around with the Golden Garden stamp set I realized one of the flowers would be perfect.
It has a stem that curves and by stamping one upside down and adding a couple of buds and part of a branch I could come close to the sketch. The sentiment is from another Altenew set and the striped paper is from my stash. To match the yellow of the flowers I took a thin strip of white and colored it with Mustard Seed DI. This definitely was a challenge but it's great to stretch my brain.
Now that you've seen my card, you should go over to the CTS
blog and see what the Design Team has created with this sketch. I'm sure you'll be amazed. Thanks Chrissy for inviting me to join you.
Oh, this is perfect! I love your fabulous take on the sketch!ReplyDelete

Congratulations on your GD role and oh, what a brilliant, beautiful take on the sketch! How timely the arrival of your Altenew goodies; you've showcased them wonderfully!ReplyDelete
This is so pretty!!! I LOVE your color choice!! See, I'm the same way. I'd look at this and try waaay to hard to make something look just like the sketch and then I'd get frustrated and probably wouldn't come up with anything. I guess I just need to try a few and hopefully I can expand the sketch in my brain a little bit. It seems intimidating to me... I love what you've done though. I can totally see the sketch in your design. Well done, Bobby!!ReplyDelete
