Kazan's Sketch #8

Another awesome sketch from Kazan this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I don't know about you, but sketch challenges always jumpstart my creativity. I think that's because layouts are the only thing I usually struggle with. If I see a cool sketch, immediately embellishments, paper, and color schemes pop into my head.

This card was no exception. Once I saw the sketch I had to work with, the ideas came quickly. My first thought was to use this glittered chipboard letter, then to pair it with this definition stamp from SU's Define Your Life set. I thought the color of the chipboard would pop against Real Red, so the rest of the card was a no-brainer. Hope you like what you see.

Stamps: Define Your Life (SU)
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Whisper White, Prints Pack dp
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: ribbons (Michael's), glittered chipboard (Making Memories), ticket corner punch, Prima, brad (The Paper Studio), dimensionals
