House of Cards January Sketch Challenge


Oh, I am so excited - this is the first time for me on the House of Cards DT! For this month it is a sketch challenge.


If you are not familiar with the rules, you can read them HERE

Since I am on the CAS team I choose to do a one-layer card with the sketch. 




I die cut the oval with a die-namics die and used it as a mask, which I then sponged in green and yellow - perhaps deep down I am longing for spring......The flower is by Studio G, the sentiment is Papertrey Dress Form.


I "grounded" the flowers with some quick black pen strikes  - it also separates the sentiment from the medallion, just like in the sketch.

You have two weeks to link up your CAS or Classic and Elegant card with House of Cards. I hope to see your creations there!

I am also submitting this card to the brand new One Layer Simplicity challenge #1 - restock your shelves - its meant to be a birthday card - I always need a lot of those.....

Thanks for coming by - I love your comments - thanks for taking the time to write!

WOW! That sketch looks fussy to me, but you made it so clean and modern! Love the colours and the 'shadows' of the stems!

This card is AMAZING, girl! I LOVE the fabulous colors you chose and the way that the shadow of the flowers extends out! A stunning debut for us at HOC! HUGS and have a great week! Mynn xx

Ooh, I love this, Cornelia! The pen strokes were, well, a stroke of genius! They look like morning/evening shadows and link the design beautifully.

I too am dreaming of spring...and ready to break out all the flower stamps to make up for all the white outside my window! Love the simplicity of this and great combination of techniques! Welcome to the team!

Super, wie minimal und effektvoll du diesen Sketch umgesetzt hast!!
Die Schatten der Blumenstengel geben dem Motiv eine tolle Dimension!
