I used this great sketch from Mojo Monday. I have been trying to make a card each week.
|Mojo Monday Challenge 393|
What better way to combine two challenges, a sketch and a color scheme. This certainly takes a lot of the guess work out of creating a card. I thought the colors would be great for a Father's Day card, so I am getting a jump on getting my cards done.
|Color Throwdown #337|
I had a printed piece of card stock that is double sided and covered all the colors in ctd337, except the Kraft color. For this color I used my pre-cut kraft cards. I created the shapes in Design Space and started cutting.
My colors are a little brighter than the color scheme provided, so I decided to add some embossing and ink to tone them down. I used Tim Holtz Distressing ink in Antique around the edges and lightly over the raised embossed area. Each shape was embossed with a different pattern. I combined chevron, dots and stripes.
I added to small brads and my sentiment. This card took me less than an hour. It takes a lot less time when you have a sketch and color scheme in mind.
I highly recommend using challenges to help you try new things.
Till next time
