Beautiful BluePosted: February 23, 2009
I finally managed to make another of the CPS Sketches, something I intend to do every week but some how don’t often manage. When I decided to do sketch #104 I realized straight away that it would take me out of my comfort zone. It is very asymmetrical, with images coming in from the side not placed in the centre where I usually put them.
Anyway, I decided that a piece of lovely paper I picked up on sale at Michaels would be just the inspiration I needed to get started. The paper has very large floral images on it but the bit I wanted to feature on the card was the white flourishes at the top of the card. The flourishes prompted me to do my stamping in white only and the blue in the paper blended in well with Baja Breeze cardstock. My stamped images were very simple so I deviated from the sketch ever so slightly with the divided panels and yes, the orientation of the card itself. The darker blue behind my patterned panels is the reverse side of the designer paper.
Cardstock: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Bohemia Paper (My Mind’s Eye)
Stamps: Ever After, Eastern Influences
