This week I discovered a sketch challenge via the monumentally talented Geri at Manitoba Stamper (a DT member), called Unscripted Sketches. I really liked the idea of playing along because it’s different from CAS (which I love a whole lot as I’m a smidgy bit of a minimalist so it suits!) and it gets my creative brain sparking in a different direction. With the help of a few firelighters (we have a woodburner so there were some spare), I fanned the flames of inspiration with some papers I wouldn’t naturally gravitate toward … they were in the mystery box I got for Cropped Event, which started this whole blogging adventure. Not that they’re not very jolly, they are indeed, it’s just that they’re not a style I’d naturally choose. However, sometimes it’s a ‘good thing’ to be inside the uncomfort zone just for the fun of it … so that’s where I went!
The cardstock, border and image are all from the same card range, I just matted the image, added the ribbon and finished with a little glitter on the Christmas tree baubles … a quick make, if not a quick think beforehand!
Supplies: Cardstock: Authentique, American Crafts, Docrafts, Ribbon/Glitter: Stash
Just time to upload before sleep overtakes me … thanks so much for dropping in and especially so if you’ve found time to make a comment, reading them makes my day! Anita 🙂
