PAO December 2014 Sketch Card

I've taken over the challenge of creating a monthly card sketch on PaperArtistsOnline for my friend Jen who is focusing on the monthly layout sketch over there.  Jen will be a hard act to follow.  Her card sketches have been fabulous, challenging and so much fun.

So for my first sketch I actually created one of my typical stream-of-consciousness cards and then made the sketch.  Is that cheating?

Though going backwards here this is my sketch:

This is the original card I made the sketch above from.  Large die cut tag from PTI, fern stamp JudiKin's, little tag and stamp TSOL/Stephanie Barnard and matting from assorted MFT Blueprint sets.  Paper from assorted stash.

Finally, I actually made a card FROM the sketch.  I just wish the shimmery appearance of this card showed up better in the photo.  Card base and blue/green panel are from Club Scrap collections, tree is a die from Elizabeth Crafts and sentiment die is PTI.

Thanks for looking.

  1. This card is so rich I could pick it up and eat it. Was that a strange thing to say? Well, in any case, I love it. And I can see the shimmer.
