Inpsire.Create.Challenges Sketch challenge 008

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fabulous sketch! I LOVE creating from a sketch and will often turn a sketch on its head and make something a little different. Seeing as the card I have created here is SO different from the sketch I thought I would share my process…. and I actually have a second card I made (first) with the same sketch coming later in the week!

How to use a sketch to make a card for Inspire.Create.Challenges using Stampin' Up! products

So, how on earth did I get to this card from that sketch… well, I have a few sketch tips to share with you:

  1. Literally turn the sketch on its head…. rotate it by 90 degrees, turn it upside down, flip it to the other side… a sketch can be really fluid and using one is all about interpretation
  2. Take on the elements…. take each element individually, and move it, change its size, or change the shape altogether!
  3. Play with colour…. remember that ultimately this is YOUR creation, and you can make it any colour, use any Designer Series Paper or stamps that you like
  4. Check out what other people have done with the same sketch…. sometimes the sketch just doesn’t jump out at you, so check out the Design Team’s work and see what they have done, maybe they have some inspiration for you! This is one of the reason’s I just LOVE a sketch challenge!

Inspire.Create.Challenge Sketch Challenge using Fresh Floral from Stampin' Up!

This particular card came to me at about 11PM, once I was in bed… and I did managed to sleep, but it was the first thing I did when I got up the next morning! I just adore this Designer Series Paper, it is Fresh Florals from the Annual catalogue and the pack is a bumper 40 sheets using the 2017-2019 In Colours. The paper coordinates perfectly with the Floral Phrases stamp set (that also has some fabulous dies to go with it too!).
