My First Sunday Sketch Challenge

Sun 9 Oct 2016

Well, how did you get on with yesterday's Colour Combination challenge? I really enjoyed putting it together for you! Today, I've got a sketch for you to try. This is going to be a regular Sunday feature from now on, so I hope you enjoy it. Here's this week's sketch.

Sunshine Stamping Sketch Challenge 9th Oct

I'd love to see your takes on this sketch idea. If you've never used a card sketch before, the idea's a really simple one. You simply use each shape in the sketch as a visual representation of an element in a card  - it's like a cardmaking map, if you like. You can use the sketch any way you want: try flipping it, or turning it round by ninety degrees, so your card sits landscape rather than portrait. How about using washi tape, or border stamps to create the striped detail?

Or.... how about using patterned paper? Here's my take on this sketch to get you started:

If you'd like to take part in my very first Sunday Sketch challenge, I'd really love to see what you come up wit. You can post your photos in the comments on this post, or email them to me. I'll choose my favourites and post them in next Sunday's blog post, and on the Sunshine Stamping Facebook page, so your cards can inspire everyone who sees them.

Everything I've used in today's projects can be ordered from my Online Shop. I've put a list at the bottom of this post - just click on any of the thumbnails for further information. 

On Wednesday, I'll be posting a reworking of a project I made a while back, remade and tweaked using current products. This is going to be another regular feature, and I'm really looking forward to that one too. I hope you'll like it! See you then... xx
