I love the Craft Challenge Blog, and I swear it has nothing to do with the fact that I ended up in the top 3 with last week's card Thank You card. They just have fabulous inspiration. So this week there was a gorgeous sketch to follow and as it happened I needed a card for my daughter's friend. Whipping it up was quick and painless with this simple sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch,
I did not want a square card since my image was so narrow so I decided to make a regular type card. Of course it is for a 11 year old girl so it needed lots of glitter and some flowers. To somewhat match the picture I punched out some flowers from some left over pink cardstock that I had used for the base and using my copics I colored them pink and blue, I feathered the colors together until they blended . I didn't think that the colors would come together and blend so beutifully but they did (2 coats each color for a perfect blend) and I am so pleased with the results. The papers are from The Girls Paperie, Shabby Flower and Newsprint. I used both sides of the papers which gave me my 4 layers with lots left over for a Layout.
