The 411 Challenge
I love checking out the sketch challenges from Stamping 411. Even if I don't get to play along, I try to save the sketches for later inspiration! But this week, I actually had the time to play along! Here is this week's sketch...
I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend of mine and thought this would be a good starting point. I turned the sketch on it's side and swapped the oval for a rectangle. I also tried my hand at coloring the white bakers twine with a marker. I wasn't thrilled with the coverage at first, but once I had it on the card with the crinkled seam binding, it looked a lot better. I made two versions, changing the ribbon just a little each time. I also added some vanilla shimmer. I love the pearly sheen that it gives my card!
