I needed a sketch to help me make another card for the Barbles #2 challenge (photo shown at bottom of post), so I used the Just Us Girls #118 Sketch, rotating it 90 degrees to the right, stretching out the square panels a little, and shrinking the oval panel a little as well. I’m too late to enter it – by a couple of weeks, HA! – but I wanted to give credit. I created the card a few weeks ago, as well, but with my crazy life, I’m just getting around to sharing it now.
This is for the center photo in the collage. I wanted to create a gradient of the sunset colors, in a way. So I chose a few sunset-y colors, inked the edges with a little light black, stamped a floral silhouette on each, and frost-spritzed each of them before matting them on black cardstock. The spritz didn’t work out quite like I wanted – the frost was quite thick and ended up splotchy in parts, and in bright light, the reflection is quite overwhelming and makes me wince. But in dim light, it’s better and I don’t mind the card so much.
I added in the yellow from the sunset through a strip of PTI saddle-stitch ribbon at the bottom. Kinda random, I know. The sentiment panel is made from one of the Spellbinders Grommet Tags, but I cut off the grommet ends (so I wouldn’t have to fill those holes somehow) and then situated the panel above the ribbon using foam adhesive.

Different. Meh. But I am happy to report that I was able to make a card for each of the photos in the collage, which was what I was going for.
