Roll with It

Sketch 507

When the sketch challenge arrived in my inbox from MFT I decided to participate. Without any clear picture in my head except the sketch I began by cutting the pp into the oval shape. Then I had to think because as yet, I don’t have many stamp sets from MFT. I went through my stamp lists to see what I could use and pulled out this retired set called Sushi Date for which I also have matching dies. I’ve had it for a while and have enjoyed using it. Initially I was drawn to the sentiment because it kind of expressed my feeling about making the card. That is how it got created, I just rolled along. I backed the white panel with some blue that is a close match to the blue in the pp and added it to the card front. Then I stamped the sentiment in Blueprint sketch, cut it into two pieces and adhered them to another of the blue paper pieces. I decided to place it underneath the oval. I stamped and die cut the bamboo and played around with placement before gluing. At first I thought I would keep to only the one image, but then decided to stamp the critter image. Coloured that with pencils added a bit of Nuvo Crystal glaze to the eyes and ears and called it finished.

  1. Johanna, I love it! This is perfect for the sketch challenge and I love that it was built around the sentiment. I’m glad you added the panda chef, as he’s adorable. The little touches you added to him really make him stand out, too. Give it time, you’ll get back into crafting. Just do what you want to and the inspiration will come.
