The first week of the month for 52CCT is a sketch challenge and we have a fun one for you this week that has lots of possibilities for your creativity. You can flip the sketch and use any shape for the oval. Just make sure we can still see the basic sketch in your creation.
As soon as I saw this sketch my brain went right to washi tape for the strips in the sketch. I also had a couple extra die cut ornaments in silver foil that I thought might be a good substitute for the oval shape.
The only washi tape I had to go with this silver was a bit unconventional for the so I really had to think about how to make this work. I decided to use the traditional A2 card size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") instead of square.
Here's what I came up with (a very non-traditional color combo):
I was happy with how it turned out, but then... I was shopping at Staples this afternoon and came across a wall display of all kinds of new washi tape - ooohhh heaven. I had a terrible time deciding which two to narrow it down to but finally snatched up a silver and gold. Here's the second, more traditional with lots of bling, using the silver washi tape and another silver foil die cut ornament: - take a look:
This card uses 3 different textures with the silver, there's the super shiny (ornament), the glittery (brads and snowflake) and the mat-finish (the washi tape and sentiment). Kind of hard to photograph - but it's really lovely IRL. This is my favorite of the two cards :o).
I'm entering the first card (black/silver/green) in the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #179 Anything Goes and Crazy Egg (4CCC#179)
I'm entering the second card (blue/silver) in the following challenges:
Merry Monday #93 - Ornaments
Twisted Tuesday Challenges #68 - Gimme a "T-A-P-E" - Use washi tape and something that begins with a T, A, P or E. My E is embossing.
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Silver & Blue Christmas
Festive Friday #24 (FFC24) - Photo Inspiration - Ornaments and glitter is what inspired me in the photo.
