It's new sketch reveal day over at Freshly Made Sketches and since I'm the hostess this week, I thought I'd stretch my creative arms and try something a little bit different. When I designed the sketch, I left some space that I thought might perfect for patterned paper, or stamped images or whatever your creative process could conjure up. But as I began to contemplate my card for the challenge, I started to fixate on the "any shape" part of the sketch.
So, as I was driving home from work the other day I came up with an idea to do a sketch within a sketch. Take a look and see if you see what I mean.
First I created a tag, and that tag follows the layout of the sketch. Then the tag became the "any shape" part of the sketch on my card. So I've got two sketches in one! That's like double the fun! And for extra credit I dug out some really old DSP for this one. It's called Afternoon Tea and I absolutely adore it, which means that I hoard whatever little scraps I've got left. But in my never-ending-quest to use up the DSP I've got in my stash I broke out the prettiest pattern in the pack to use on the card front.
