My Sketch World Blog Hop!!

Hi There and Welcome to the My Sketch World Card Blog Hop!! 

It has been such an honor and delight to work with Lucy and the My Sketch World sketches for a number of years and I'm delighted to be back on the team as the Inspiration Designer!  Lucy's sketches are always amazing to work with and the one she has provided with for the hop is no exception, check it out:


For my card I decided to rotate the sketch to the left, thus making my design look like this: 

I added a bit of modeling paste to the corners of the base piece of patterned paper using a woodgrain Crafter's Workshop stencil and then brushed with some color - I wanted this piece of paper to have some subtle texture staying true to the pattern already on it.  From there I continued to build up a simple rustic theme card with a few artsy elements thrown in.
In playing with the sketch I also changed up the center panel to a circular element and slide it over, allowing the background work I created to show, and the diamonds became deer :)  I really love how using sketches inspire various creativity as you will see throughout the hop!!  

A close up:

The star background paper of this card is embossed with a Crafter's Workshop cloud stencil, then colored with some Pan Pastels and highlighted with pen work to make the images pop!  To see another sample of this technique you can go here.
 The low down on the hop is this:
