Get Creative - Card sketch December
Today we have a new challenge over at Get Creative - the card sketch challenge for December. The card that I made:
And the sketch:
Once I saw the frame of the sketch, I thought of the Lawn Fawn frames, but I wanted to make something different. So I thought of using my Distress Ink markers and fill the frame with coloured flowers, while I would leave the flowers outside the frame without colour, in black and white. A coloured butterfly would be perfect as well.
But the black and white contrast outside the frame turned out to be too bold and distract from the coloured part which I wanted to be the focus point. So I used some vellum paper to tone it down. I found the result satisfying, what do you think?
And some close-ups:
To add some dimension to the card, I used quite a lot of glossy accent on the butterfly, the flowers and the frame. Especially the butterfly gives the illusion of vitro when you see it live! For the antennas, I coloured a natural twine with black Promarker, made to little knots at the end and positioned it behind the butterfly.
I also added 2-3 gemstones for addition shine..
I hope you like it!
So why don't you come over at Get Creative to see the amazing cards that the design team has prepared... I so like that there are different styles and different sketch interpretations! And don't forget, the winner of this challenge will come back as Guest Designer in February!
