I enjoyed playing along with this week's Lets Get Sketchy Challenge #4 ... I liked the simplicity of the sketch and loved how it really focuses on the photo!
This is my take on the sketch --- I used a close-up sepia photo of my friend Gill as the focal point on the photo ... I love how the photo is the "main" attraction on the layout :)
For the first part of the title I used some mini alphas and a bit of glossy accents to give them some dimension. I mixed up a "lacy" Maya Road flower with some metallic accents and punched a circle flower out of one of the patterned papers for embellishment.
In the top left corner I added another punched flower and part of a gigantic metallic eyelet ... notice how the Glossy Accents on the flower adds that extra touch!
And of course ... I created a few cards with my scraps!
I thought this metallic Birthday strip added a nice touch to this card.
And here is a card that I made for my Grandfather ... I accidentally punched a dent into the bottom right gromlet ... but I don't think my Grandpa would mind!
Thanks for dropping by ... come again tomorrow for more creations!
