Sketch card challenge
This week at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge, there is a sketch challenge! A sketch challenge is a fantastic opportunity to insert your personal style into a pre-set design. Country elegance is very much my personal style and a great number of ladies as well. Not being too much country mind you, but elegant at first glance, and you can get the look for your projects too!
This is a great opportunity to create a card with any products you wish while following the idea of a pre set theme. Be sure to go over to the page and check out all of the Design Team’s cards this week and if you are up to a challenge…. add a photo of your card as well!
Country Elegance Theme
My card also works for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Paper Players
How to add country elegance to a handmade card
Have you participated in this type of challenge? It so much fun! The SIP Design Team never fails to impress me with their fantastic card creations. With this type of challenge, the creativity level is incredible!
The rustic charm of the Wood Textures DSP is a nice compliment to the black and gold tones. Imagine you are celebrating a Thanksgiving dinner at a country lodge that is decorated in a perfect blend of elegance in the wooded and country setting. The leaves are a perfect compliment and featuring them in varying tones creates a varied look to this pre-set design. What color and style combination would you create with this sketch?
