Happy Wednesday everyone!
On Monday you might of seen the sketch Lynne Forsythe posted on the Die-Namites blog. If you haven’t please hop over there and check out the beautiful creations that are already up from Lynne and Peggy!
Here is my take on the sketch. I changed it up just a little to work for me.
Today I am working with one of the latest die releases by Die-namites. The Summer Basket.
I was a little challenged by this die. Not exactly sure how I was going to use it even though I love it and think its beautiful. The detail in it was so pretty that I didn’t want it to get lost in the project. I decided to layer and add color with copics. Here is a couple of shots where I sketched some lines separating the flowers from each other and the basket, and where I cut it out.
Here is when I assembled the background cardstock, the die cut, and the cut-apart floral portion of the die cut.
I cut the background paper in a circle shape and adhered that to a pretty aqua doily. Lynne’s dare was to use fabric in your project. I don’t really have any fabric laying around so I did the next best thing and got some thin yarn and added that around my circle, in a button bow, and the string for the pendant.
The pendant was made using a punch by EK Success. Background paper is from Studio Calico.
I love playing with a sketch when I am lacking my own creative inspiration. Sometimes its just enough to get my creativity flowing. I also love it when it helps me get out of my comfort zone and try new things. Make sure you check back here every 1st Monday of the month for that month’s sketch and dare!
