Cas(e) this Sketch! #56

Over at Cas(e) this Sketch! there's another elegantly simple design to inspire this week's challenge.


I love simple sketches like this. You can stick hard and fast to the design or you can choose to add to it whilst still being able to recognise the inspiration behind it. Not so easy when a sketch has a lot of elements within it, to take them away and still show you've used the sketch.

For example, once I had made my card...


...I tilted the design.

It doesn't take much to turn a simple sketch into your own unique creation.

And at the moment, I'm loving the wonky look

Me too. Straight or wonky, it's a winner. I like that neutral background behind the stripes to give it added punch.
