I almost never participate in sketch challenges because, I get all caught up in trying to copy the sketch but, not “COPY” the sketch. Do you know what I mean? The idea is to follow along with the original but, make it your own. And the whole time I’m thinking “this doesn’t look like the original”! Very stressful. LOL
But this time the prize was way too tempting for me to sit this one out. I can’t tell you what the prize is but, you can see for yourself by hopping along the blogging trail. Cards Blog Challenge
For my version of the sketch I used the sentiment portion of Birdie Brown’s monthly freebie, an older wood mount musical score stamp and some Spellbinder Nestabilities Dies. I printed the sentiment out and colored the words in green before blotting the banner in some Shock Pink Copic refill ink. As you can see the pink bleed onto the green and gave me an unintentional two toned effect, that I wound up really liking. The two toned ink gave me the inspiration to create the green star insert for the pink circle. As a final touch I added Glossy Accents and some Fairy Dust glitter to the sentiment and star and a few pink gems too.
I will be entering my card into the Cards Blog Challenge to win the a fore mentioned prize pack. You can join in too up until June 17th!
