Happy Thursday! The weekend is near and there is so much to be done with Christmas on its way! Today I am sharing my design team card for CAS(E) this Sketch! I love being on this team, it pushes me as a card designer! The sketch this week was a toughie for me...I was really struggling but then something happened!
I was making my Art Impressions card for today and I realized that the oval I had used for my main image was too big, so I placed another oval "inside" of the original oval I had cut and voila! I had my oval "outline". So I decided to use an oval outline instead of a rectangle outline! Yay!
I cut my background white and using the "stamping off" technique, I stamped 3 pine boughs in the top corner...I only inked once and then stamped off two more times, to give it more depth. Then I placed the oval on my card but cutting some foam dimensionals into small pieces. Then I stamped the image inside on the main card front. Then I die cut the bird and popped him up in the "tree".
This card took minutes to make...I think about 10 minutes in total!
I used the Verve Sentiment called Every Heart Plain Jane. I LOVE it! Anything with a music reference is wonderful!
