No posts from me for ages then two come along at once!
This week at Christmas Card Throwdown we have a sketch challenge for you.
It's a lovely versatile sketch which I'm sure will be interpreted in many different and clever ways. My original thought was washi tape but then I went in another direction so you can have that idea. (You're welcome).
I've used some paper which came in a goody bag from a show. It has rather odd purple swirls on what should be the front but the back is this lovey cream colour with speckles and a tiny amount of glitter.
I stamped the design then cut the ric-rac edge and slipped a bit of red paper underneath so show off the curves.
I also coloured the ribbon slightly with pro-marker to darken it. I tried the ink pad but is just made it mucky in this case. I washed it out then I had to get out my hair straighteners to smooth out the creases. Top tip for quickly smoothing ribbon.
I love the red on the cream and the whole card in general, really.
I hope you'll feel inspired to get creative with this sketch and get ahead on your Christmas cards. You have two weeks for the challenge.
