5th Challenge on Cupcake Craft Challenges... Sketch by Lauren
This week we had a sketch to interpret as our weekly challenge on Cupcake CC. Lauren designed the sketch for us. From the first time I saw it, I could see that it fitted perfectly well for a card for the guys :)
Boyish cards aren't my speciality, but I loved working with this layout. Simple and elegant. The Magnolia images are painted with watercolours, i used two different sts, to have more choice of colous, and in the end I defined his trousers with some gel pen colour from paintbrush.
The embossed background was entirely hand- embossed. It took me one and a half hours, and beleive me, my hand and shoulders ached after that! lol paper ribbon and sentiment: HOTP Cardmaker's Earth Palette Matt behind images: DCWV Text prints matt stack Brads and fibres from stash.
This week, it would be brilliant if we have more entries.. com'on this won't take you long!! :) I'd like to see some new ideas, at least when I'll use this sketch again, I'll have more interpretations in my mind ;)
Thanks for looking!
Wishing you love .. and laughter.. forever after!! :) Rosette xx
P.S. As you can see.. with the help of my lovely community, the camera arrived!! No more boring coloured scans!! Yippee! Now I own my FinePix, and it's great! :) Thank you from my heart. xx
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
