Hi everyone! Today's card was also made for the CAS Colours and Sketches sketch challenge this week. It's always fun to see how different people interpret the same sketch. And it's interesting to do the challenge several times to interpret it differently yourself.
I found myself thinking I should move the sentiment because I had already done that (see yesterday's post) but then I remembered - it's a sketch challenge and certain things shouldn't be radically altered - like where elements are placed! But there are ways to add variety. Here the sentiment strip goes all the way across the card. Yesterday it was only part way.
For this card, I stamped three of the same panel. I only needed two panels but since precision was key here I knew I'd be starting from square one if things got messed up on one of them.
The purple and blue flowers are only one color. The lighter color is stamped off. To do this in the MISTI I placed a sheet of computer paper over my card stock, stamped it, then removed it and stamped my card stock. It gave me a great lighter image.
I wanted to add some interest without adding another element to the sketch. So I die cut a stitched window in one of the panels. (This particular die cuts "stitches" on both sides of what is being cut which finishes the negative piece nicely and makes it more useful.) I lined up my panels one on top of the other and used foam tape to add a little dimension. The sentiment strip is adhered to the top panel directly.
And as a bonus, since I didn't need the extra panel, I can now make a reverse card with the stitched square raised over that extra panel!
