52 CCT Sketch Challenge
Over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, Louise has a fantastic sketch with lots of detail to get your crafting teeth into! It reminds me of patchwork and I made my card design up as I went along. I thought I was going to make quite a different card, but I ended up using lots of cool greys, blues and silvers. All my card was made from scraps - just like a real patchwork quilt!
I started off with some pieces of Eastern Elegance dsp and combined these with a panel of card embossed with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. I sponged the snowflakes with silver ink to highlight them. The stamped areas were created with Stampin' Up's Eye-catching Ikat set. I have also added silver Glimmer Paper and stars punched from scraps.
It was a really interesting sketch to work with and I'm looking forward to seeing all the different interpretations! Have a great weekend, April x
