It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today I'm featuring the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate both from the Fine Art Floral Suite. The acetate coordinates with the printed papers and acts as an overlay. It's a gorgeous look. Here is the sketch I used for today's card.
You can create a card using the sketch exactly as it's presented or switch it up – it's meant to be a starting point for your creativity.
The acetate is so pretty layered on the coordinating Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper but you can also use it on its own.
Imagine an artist, delicately painting individual canvases in a classic impasto style. It's beautiful, isn't it? That's exactly what this paper is! A Stampin' Up! artist hand-paint canvases with beautiful florals and textures in classic Stampin' Up! colors. Then those canvases were photographed and made into this unique designer series paper. The pack includes florals, patterns, colour variance, and all the touches of professional paintings. This papercrafting staple is great scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more!
