Hello there everyone. I am back in the UK, arrived Heathrow at 07.30 this morning, and home by 11 am………..feeling pretty good so far. I am sure it will be a little like hell this evening, but I will get there!
This is my fourth and final card as Guest Designer for CAS Colours and Sketches, and I made this card at the weekend at my sister’s. I must say it took a little organising and thinking. I wanted to stay away from flowers this time, so I searched my sister’s stash (again) and found these little aliens. I don’t have anything like them myself, and always struggle with cute cards, but played a little with them – mainly the colours – and came up with this card.
The stamp set is from Gerda Steiner Designs ‘Alien Invasion’, and stamped with Versafine Black Onyx, coloured with Zigs. Nothing fancy, no shading of the colours. I did try shading them, but the images are quite small, and I thought the shading got lost a little, so I stuck with block colours. The thing with Zigs is that there are so many colours, aren’t there? Which to use, in what order on the card? Blimey. I must have shuffled these three little aliens around so many times before settling on this layout.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I also stamped a few little stars around for a little added detail.
I hope you can play along with this sketch challenge, and I look forward to seeing your creations.
I shall also be entering this card into the following challenges:
