This Months Sketch was done by Louise of White Flag Designs, Louise is usually next but has had to pull out this month.
When I first saw this sketch I was like Geese Louise, what am I going to do with this. I was trying to sketch different designs and ended up throwing my sketchbook down in frustration, and that’s when I saw the sketch in a different angle, and things started looking better. Lol
I went for a really simple design with 3 colours Basic Black, Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum. I wanted to play with my new Sunshine Wishes dies and thought the congrats would look the best so went with that and the long flower, and also a bit of the sweet sugarplum ruched ribbon, to help with that last element of the sketch.
I went with a pop up Z fold card that’s been popular on pinterest lately. I’m pleased with how it all came together, I think I would maybe shadow the flower next time to help it pop off the page or use dimensional thinking on it. I did sprinkle a bit of Wink of Stella over the flower and the congrats not sure if its really visible in the pics. I also added a white panel to the back so you could write a message, couple of rhinestones and the card was complete.
This was a hard sketch to work from and it really did challenge the old grey cells, but I’m really pleased with how it all turned out.
