SDC 12 – sketch


Anew challenge up on the Stampotique designers blog – this week it’s a sketch.  The sketch is nice enough, and I did the first version of the card using it, with some Felt Fusion by Queen & Co (how long have I had that sitting, unused in my stash? a couple of years at least!), some scraps, and some vellum (again, tons of that in my stash but a bit out-of-fashion nowadays) but in the end, I prefer my version, minus the two side blocks.  The colour in the photo isn’t as true as I would like it, but the morning light comes in the other side of the house.  You can’t really see it, but I punched with a button-hole punch over Moon Girl’s hands so I could thread the flower stem thru it and make it look like she is holding it.

which do YOU prefer?

  1. Hi Mary Anne, your cards are very pretty – I prefer the second version as it is. I also think if you were using the first one it might need something on the other squares to enhance them. 🙂

  2. Both cards are gorgeous! Dont you love finding neat stuff in your stash! Thanks so much for joining SDC!

  3. Another vote for the second one.

  4. Both cards are fabulous. The first one is my favourite. Thanks for joining us at SDC #12.

  5. i like your version just slightly better. A little less crowded so the flower and Moon Girl stand out more. Fab card

  6. Beautiful colours & design! x

  7. i love your version, too :0)
    maybe the first one needs something in the other windows?

  8. aw, so cute. I like the symmetry of the first one but the second one definitely pulls my attention.

  9. I love the first one with the vellum windows although they are both darling!!! Great job on them and love that felt. Thanks for joining us at SDC this week!

  10. I like them both, fab use of the sketch. Thanks for joining us at SDC again xx

  11. I agree, your version is better. First version with the three blocks looks too much like a belt buckle!

  12. I vote for the second one as well. It’s more eye catching.

  13. I like the second one best – the single ‘window’ pulls my eye in more strongly to the little figure. Like the colourway …

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
