It’s Sunday, May 1st and “A Card A Day in the Month of May” is now underway! A whole month of new ideas using sketches, plus every day is a blog hop. So we hope you will pull out your favorite TAC stamp sets and play along during May.
Sketch 1 is the featured sketch this week (May 1 – 7). I love sketches – it is really quite amazing to see how each designer “interprets” the basic elements drawn. Feel free to rotate the sketch, the dimensions are a suggestion, layer if you like and squares can be rectangles, circles, oval etc…
My card today follows the sketch quite literally. I used "Hope Perches" a Level B hostess set, papers are Winchester SWIC and cardstock. The image is colored with Copic Markers. I sponged the edges with Cognac and Burnt Umber Palette ink. The center background is pastel blue chalk.
This second card is still quite literal, however I rounded some corners and added a few brads and floss. And of course, the color palette is completely different.
Supplies: Stamp set "Good Things"; Papers Cha Cha SWIC, Bazzill Dark Sky, Beeswax, Berrylicious; Black Scrappers Floss, Silver Brads, Copic Markers.
Hope you enjoy Day 1 of "A Card a Day in the Month of May". This sketch runs thru this week, next week there will be a new sketch. Check back at TAC Savvy Projects Blog for lots of cards ideas...a new one EVERY day this month!
