Is it April Fool's already? It sure doesn't feel like it to me! I haven't got any jokes to share but I do have a card for the newest color palette from colourQ and the latest design from Seize the Sketch, which just happens to be designed by little ol' me!
I recently took the clean and simple Online Card Class and one of the techniques that was demonstrated was making your own plaid. Basically you mask off strips on some card stock and sponge away. I was a little intimidated to try this at first, sure that I would make a big mess. What colors would look good together? How would I arrange them? But then I saw these gorgeous colourQ colors I knew that Arielle did the hard work of choosing the colors so I couldn't possibly mess up the design! I'm so glad I tried it because I love these colors and I think they make a pretty fab plaid!
After I expended all that energy making the plaid I was stumped on a design for the rest of my card. (I may have designed the sketch, but that doesn't mean that I knew what I wanted to do with it, LOL) so my friend Rita suggested using vellum. She's so smart because this was a fantastic idea! The plaid still shows through the vellum and I'm left with a fun interpretation of the sketch!
