In the United States, it's Tax Day today, so let's take our minds off receipts, forms, deadlines, and calculators and think about crafting instead, shall we?
Below you'll find Sketch 224. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week's sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.
Heather was once asked to briefly describe herself in three short, fun sentences, and here is what she came up with: "I love my Savior, my husband and daughters, my friends, and crafting and photography – in that order! I have lately discovered a love for tea, but can’t stand coffee – and also love to read! It is hard for me to make a project without twine."
Let's see what Heather saw when she checked out this week's sketch!
Heather took a direct approach to the sketch with this pretty little monochromatic card. The slant in the main panel, the rounded corners, and the circles at the bottom all make an appearance here.
The Challenge Team keeps amazing me with their innovation and talent! Let's see what they are up to this week.
By combining several stamp sets, Erin Lee created the artistic border at the bottom of her card mirroring the four circles in the sketch. Her bold sentiment comes from the brand new True Friends set.
Earlier this week I asked members of our Facebook group to share advice for new cardmakers. Jill answered in this way, "Stretch your supplies. A few basics can go a LONG way." And this card is a testament to that! Jill creatively used the Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX to create this colorful geometric panel.
Vera added a lot of depth to her card with subtle stamping and texture paste. She saw a scalloped bottom edge rather than the four circles in the sketch. A great way to ground this design!
