Hello! It’s time for the first sketch challenge of the month over at CAS – Colours and Sketches! When I drafted this one, I thought about how so many sketches have a lot of rectangular or square elements, so I wanted to break away from that trend. So there’s a large triangle that takes up one entire side of the card, and a place to use any non-rectangular shape.
I ended up turning the sketch on its side. I let designer papers do a lot of the work for me, and ended up with the only stamping being the sentiment. I felt the angles of the hexagon played along with the angles of the triangle, and I’ve used dimensional adhesive to set the hexagons off a bit from the card front. The mats add a little more color to the card.
So now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you can create with this sketch! Share your card with us at the CAS – Colours and Sketches site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, February 19.
