I am doing the sketch challenge at AAA Cards. This challenge blog is for clean and simple cards. I do struggle making clean and simple cards. All that white space scares me.
Here is the sketch for the challenge this week. It had the optional twist of using an animal.
Here is my take on this sketch. This stamp I have had in my stash for a long time and never used it. I thought it fit the sketch perfectly. I cut pieces of watercolor paper and stamped the image. I then water colored the image. To highlight the bird I came back in with some colored pencils and brighten up some of the colors. I matted the image with a blue card stock. I made my card bases out of the same watercolor paper. I did add some watered down light blue oxide ink to the front and then using a stencil added clear glitter gel to give the card some sparkle. (Christmas cards need sparkle.) I made four of these cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
