So the last couple of weeks I have been researching on what sketches were, how they are used, and anything else I could learn about them. I had entered one before, but I wasn’t really into it at the time and I was still learning a lot of techniques.
Out of my research I found that the one greatest thing is being able design cards a lot easier. Duh, I mean who wouldn’t have thought of that right? I have always looked at sketches, but always saw everyone’s outcome and it intimidated me.
So I did.
Here is the sketch he provided:
And here is my result:
For this card I used the Lawn Fawn “Mermaid for You” stamp set. I colored my mermaids hair with copic markers, along with the rock, seaweed and coral piece. For the tail, I put a coat of multi-media matte glue down and then sprinkled with some glitter I had on hand. Then I die cut each piece.
I cut some blue cardstock (not sure of the brand) and then cut a smaller piece of the “Under the Sea” from Doodle Bug. I then cut out a piece of vellum with a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die, and heat embossed the sentiment with The Ton’s wonderful rose gold embossing powder. It truly is amazing in person. I placed this on a Neenah Solar White 110lb top folding card base.
I hope you enjoyed this card! Have a great week!
