I was off Thurs and Friday and down with a migraine so no crafting then had to work the weekend. I have a card today I need to get done after I run some errands. Ohhhhh maybe this sketch will work for that image I have to use.....going to look now!!
OK, I am running WAY behind, and need to go look at the sketches and everyone's creations. But, for anyone who doesn't know, I started a "cheer" thread called Operation Happy Mail on this forum. I'd love for anyone who would be interested to join. But, I found out this morning that a member of SB.com, Kimberly Rae, is back in the cardiac intensive care unit. This is her second hospitalization in the cardiac unit in two weeks. Please PM me if you would like to send her a card.
If you are going for the look like they are on the internet then you nailed it. It also has the 60's vibe to it....so which is also minimalist and I think you have that looking going on.
What catches my eye is the dead space of pink. Can you put 3 small black jewels or brads? or a small flourish like they do sometimes at the end of a poem. I hope I'm making sense....it is morning and I stayed up late!
I'm also torn about the black line across the pp. I like it and then I wonder if it should be the same pink color as the journaling block.
I think you nailed the looked...is it different then your normal look? That might be what is bugging you. Can't wait to see what you try and what works.
This is for sketch 6.
Not what I intended but because I was behind I thought I'd make it work for this sketch.
Those little designs are hard to color!! It was my first try, hope to get better at it. TFL. card By ChansGram
Thank you all for the great suggestions! I will play around with them. Kathy, I think it's kind of my usual style as far as petty simple but it's the first time I tried coloring in greyscale. That pink space was bugging me too lol.
Amy the card looks awesome as usual, especially love the coloring in grey tones, you should do more of that!! I think as far as the space, maybe sequins in the bottom corner of the pink and the top corner if the black base.
I am new to this crazy world of card making and crafting, but I am catching on quick. I LOVE to make those hand made cards for people. The one's u get in the Stores, they just don't have the right stuff when u need to say that Something special to someone. This is why I started doing this.
anyways don't want to bore u all with my gift for gab. But I was wondering if this challenge is still going strong and if I am able to join in?
Yes, we are still doing the card challenge.
Would love for you to join us. Just jump right in and start making the cards.
If you have any questions about how to do it please read the very first page of this thread to find out what to do and you can ask me ad well.
Hello Lovelies! I have a new sketch for you. I love the little banners in this sketch which is what drew my eye to it! I got it on Pinterest which is where I find alot of my inspiration. Maybe I'll actually get to make one this time. So glad you are all having fun with the sketches. Enjoy! Cardmaker's Sketch By Joanie R summer By Southern Lady card By ChansGram Sketch #9 By Kathy101
