Lucy Abrams' sketches based cards


On Monday I'm back at work after two really great, relaxing and creative weeks.... So I thought I should break my records and yesterday I prepared five cards. I decided it would be better to have one long post with all five cards than one post for each card, so the post will be quite long!

First, I will start off with a picture of all five cards so that you can see if it is interesting for you to read more details:

All cards are based on sketches from Lucy Abrams that I really, really love. Although a new mom (congratulations!!!), she decided to have a week of sketch challenges, so if you want to get some seriously great inspiration, you can visit her blog, it is highly recommended!

So, let's start (you can see the main supplies I have used at the end of this post):

Sketch and card no. 1:

A CAS card. To give some dimension, I have inserted the paper towel into the box and used foam stickers to make it pop. A closer picture:


Sketch and card nο. 2:

I made the large butterfly again for the Inspiration Showcase canvas from Jennifer McGuire. This time I added the antennae... Closer picture:

Sketch and card no. 3:

The two chipboard birds are from a Greek company, Sfragidomania and I coloured them with Distress Embossing Powder. I have used distress stickles on the heart. Closer photo:

Sketch and card no. 4:

The things I did to the poor heart... white paint, distress inks, distress stains, I tried many, many things! At the end I thought I should stop and here is the result. For a contrast, I have used Glossy Accents on the small heart. Closer photo:

Last but not least, sketch and card no. 5:

The sketch is quite similar to the second one, but I thought I would do something different, so I went for two felt rolled roses. Closer look:

So that's all folks! I hope you like them!

Which one do you like best?

Now I'm going to focus more on my crochet, as my cousin is going to give birth until Feb 4, so I have to have the blanket I've been preparing ready asap!
