Hello!  It’s time for a sketch challenge again over at CAS Colours & Sketches.  We have a pretty interesting one for you this time!  You’re welcome to manipulate the sketch, so long as we can still easily recognize the main elements.

The sketch was drawn up for a square card.  Since I prefer to make A2 sized rectangular cards, rather than trying to stretch the sketch out into a rectangle, I just put the square element on a rectangular card base.  Even though I think it’s a really neat sketch, I had a difficult time deciding what I wanted to do with it.  I thought about using butterflies or flowers or even ice cream cones for the triangular elements of the sketch, but nothing seemed “right”, so in the end I just stayed very true to the sketch and used triangles of designer paper.  It was a nice way to use up some scraps I had!  I have to admit it’s not one of my most favorite cards – it seems too flat, like it’s lacking something.  But it’s definitely not one of my worst cards either, so I’m OK with it.  It will be a good addition to the stockpile I’m building for Operation Write Home.

  1. Seems I was not the only one a bit stumped by this sketch then. Great idea to use patterned paper and I like how you’ve used the square matted onto a rectangular card.
