Good morning. I trust you've had a very pleasant weekend. You won't be surprised to learn that I managed to not only go to a craft class (though I didn't craft) but that I ended up at more food fairs. Not only did I end up buying the most sumptuous macarons made by a UK company that I've ever tasted, but that I ended the weekend perfectly cooking and eating a crocodile steak. I can tick that off my exotic meats list now.
Anyway, when I wasn't tucking into dressed crab or banana and orange brownies, I took some time to make a card for this week's CAS(e) this Sketch Challenge.
Here's the sketch:
And here's my take on it:
It started life as an idea in my head that I wanted to make triangular paper straws and stick them on a card to see the effect. Turns out, it's rather like a time consuming way to make corrugated card. However, it does allow you to use whatever colour you wish, in my case, white. I wanted to go down the white on white route but it looked so much better backed onto a darker mat.
The rest was pretty standard fare, a couple of dies and a stamped sentiment and there you have it, a clean, graphic styled card.
Thanks for popping by.
