last night, i made a card for the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge! i love this challenge blog!! but this week, i have to admit, it was hard for me. i don't know why exactly, but i was finally able to come up with an idea that i liked with the sketch! :)
so i took the sketch and rotated it about...45 degrees (according to my engineer husband). here it is:
it's ok, right? maybe not stunning, take your breath away, but i'm happy with it! :)
i used some gold embossing powder to create the sun 'rays'. then i stamped the sentiment over that with some black staz-on ink. oh yeah, all of the stamps are from mama elephant's sunny skies stamp set. love that one! :)
then i added some enamel dots (to emphasize the rays, of course) and popped up the whole grey panel onto some black cardstock. fun!
so that's it! :) i'm off to the beach with my little menn (love love love love love the beach). i'm sure to get some inspiration (and rays!!) there!
