I love this OWH sketch this week!! They post the new sketch on Sundays and I actually did the sketch challenge on a timely fashion this week. I was visiting my sister and I papercrafted while she quilted. Those quilters are fast!! They can get so much while I'm still cutting paper bits.
Back to the Sketch #156. It is fun to do, easy to do, and can flipped a couple different ways.
I used it for a few of quick cards, using some stickers from a SNAP set and from a journal stack. I had the pink paper from a package of paper from Michael's. It is printed on one side and solid pink on the other side. I used tiny stickers on the top and bottom of the cards and buttons on another card.
I liked these quick cards but then I had another idea.
My sister plans quilt retreats and I make a card for each of the participants.
The theme of the next retreat in the spring is Everything is Just Ducky.
So, I made the next 2 cards. The first card has the sentiment under the duck and it just didn't look right since it was under the water. So I moved the sentiment to the top. My sister really liked the cards. I used more paper from that package of Micheal's paper and I also used some ProvoCraft paper my sister had for a while. I used Viva Pearl Pen yellow for the three little circles in the sketch. I cut the ducks out on my Cricut, using the original Paper Dolls cartridge ( the water is from the same cart too) . The duck's beak and wing was colored with an orange marker and I added some of the Viva Pearl Pen yellow on the duck in various spots. My sister printed the sentiment on her printer for me since I didn't have any sentiment stamps with me at my sister's house. I popped the duck using Scotch foam tape and a bit on the smaller water strip.
Thanks for stopping by.
