Sketch Saturday

Sketch # 20 this week for Sketch Saturday and here it is...

And here is my take on the sketch


I've made a masculine card with this sketch as I haven't made one for ages. I used a piece of brown bazill card for the background and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I then stitched around it with a beige thread using a zig zag stitch. I then cut out 3 photo corners and again embossed them with the same folder. To add some colour to them I sponged them with 3 shades of chalk ink. The next thing to do was the strip of patterned paper, I layered that onto some beige card and stitched around the edges again. The patterned paper has a bone pattern on it but I don't think you can see it as I sponged this also with inks. The three squares are stampboard which I sponge inked and then added the stamped image. To highlight some areas of the images I scratched the stampboard. The main image which is an American Art stamp set called Dog set, has been stamped , I had to use SU's stamp-a-ma-jig to get the words correctly positioned. I coloured in the image with promarkers and then sponge inked around it. And finally I added the bone eyelet.

Stamp:- American Art Stamps - Dog set

Photo corners:- Ellison thin cuts

Paper:- Making Memories

Beautiful card Shary. It's kind of hard to see the embossing on this picture so I'm sure it's even more pretty in real life. Love the sponging you did and the stitching. I think this card could be send to both a male and a female, it's very beautiful. Thank you for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week.
