I’m joining the Clean & Simple Card Class this month. Today’s topic is sketches, so I utilized one of those. I also pulled the colors from one of the inspiration photos from the Barbles #2 challenge at Barb’s blog. Aaaand… I tried to fulfill the requirements for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #48 for backgrounds made with border dies. Lastly, I think it qualifies for the CAS-ual Fridays #34 challenge of using chipboard.
So here is what I came up with: (sorry for the late-night-no-light photo of this bright, bright color!)
From Barb’s photo (shown at the bottom of this post), I was inspired by the hot pink and the swirls made from the glasses, which I tried to imitate through the use of the Moroccan Motifs impression plate and also the ricrac borders.
The ricrac borders are also the focus of the Make It Monday technique to use the die-cuts as the background. Although, I only used them for a small section of the background, in order to illustrate different textures/patterns, which I saw in the photo.
The white heart and letters are all homemade chipboard elements, so they stand up from the black circles a bit, with the black circles themselves also being raised on foam adhesive for a little depth.

I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to share the sketch, since it is part of a paid class, so I’m erring on the side of caution and not sharing it. But it is basically a card with a mat layer and three elements at the bottom. Hopefully you get the idea. You could always go join in the class if you want to pick up all the sketches and such. 😉
And here is the photo collage from the Barbles challenge – this card is for the top left clip. You should create something and link up if you find time!
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
