stamptastic friends blog hop

Welcome to another Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop. I love these hops because they make me try techniques and ideas that I may not have thought about trying.

Today we have a sketch challenge. The good thing about sketches is everyone sees things in their own unique way.

The funny thing for me is once I made my first card, I had an idea for a second card that is different, but still follows the sketch.

My first card followed the sketch in a literal and traditional way. Texture Chic Designer Series Paper is the front of the card, and I added the elements following the sketch suggestion. Sequins and pearls add some bling and texture. As a color lover this card makes me happy.

As I was finishing the first card, I had the thought…the circle can be part of the background. I used Blending Brushes, Pool Party ink & Bermuda Bay ink to create the “circle” element. Then I added the same elements as the first card.

Which card is your favorite? I like them both!
