Recipe for trouble: Take a lovely sketch, print a cute image too big to fit the sketch and color it before thinking about the overall card!
Yikes! I think I spent more time trying to fix the problem I created than it would have taken me to color a whole new image in a smaller size! I started with a horizontal A2 card and thought I could make it work. I monkeyed around and adapted the sketch a bit (Sorry, Alex!), but it just didn't fit. Back to the drawing board (at about 11:30 p.m.- on a work night) and start over with a bigger card base. The trouble was, I needed a 12x12 piece of plain cardstock (which I don't have in great supply). Obviously I got the card done, and the good news is I have a nice A2 card back with sweet little trees as a background waiting to be used for a future card. I'm sure we all have stories like this!
Anyway, Alex is our lovely sketch designer this week for Sketch Saturday. Sassy Cheryl Stamps is the sponsor. This is her sweet image, Freedom, featuring her character named Noah. Stop by the blog to see how successfully the other DT members were using the sketch for their cards!
