I'm always the first one to admit when a sketch scares me. I believe that honesty is the best policy. So when I first saw this week's sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch I wanted to run and hide! I had no ideas floating around my head, other than a vague idea to use embossing paste, and no amount of puttering around my craft room checking out my supplies was helping.
I had checked out some of the cards my fellow teamies made and was absolutely blown away by their creativity. You can see them on the CAS(E) This Sketch blog yourself and see what I mean. I despaired of ever coming up with an idea. But as sometimes happens to me my panic recedes and an idea somehow manages to take shape. In this case I happened to look at a new stencil that I recently bought and my embossing paste idea didn't seem so far-fetched anymore. Here's my card and Chrissy's sketch:
I can't tell you how many times I have had absolutely no idea how I'm going to put a card together when all of a sudden inspiration strikes and I find myself with a good idea in my pocket! This is one of those times. I think it's a little hard to see in the picture but I left a big curvy spot between the swirly embossing paste to mimic the sketch. And as luck would have it the challenge at The Card Concept is a warm heart where the colors and the heart lent themselves quite well to my card.
So thank you for stopping by! And don't forget to join us in the CAS(E) This Sketch gallery this week. I am on pins and needles waiting to see all the creativity I know will be there!
