So here on my blog, I'm running my own card contest until July 27th with the theme Christmas in July.
In order to get some craftsperation myself, I've tried out an assortment of different contests this month. Today's challenge is courtesy of CAS. This week's sketch challenge definitely got my cogs going:
Immediately, I knew what I wanted to do, which was to use my Anna Griffin Anniversary Dies. These cutouts always look gorgeous. But you know how these things go. Ideas and then putting it into practice are two separate entities.
In my head, that circle in the center was a cut out. Unfortunately, I struggled with each cutout I did, and ended up going in a completely different direction which was to make the circle pop out. Going for elegant and shimmery, I used a wholly different color scheme for anniversary cards than I've ever used before. So here's the result:
This was definitely a great sketch to get the ideas flowing. I'm sure this won't be the only time I try this layout.
