Just a quick post.  I’m sharing a card that was featured in this month’s PageMaps.  Myself and the rest of the Penny Black Design Team created cards based on Becky Fleck’s sketches.  Each team member worked on a separate sketch.

This is the sketch I worked on.



And this is what I created:


SUPPLIES  Stamps: Winter’s Blossoms (30-193); Let’s Chat (30-244) Dies: Picture This (51-056); Exulatations (51-060) Color Mediums: Distress Ink (Ranger); Prismacolor Pencils; Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko) Other Versamark (Tsukineko); White Embossing Powder (American Crafts); Black Embossing Powder (American Crafts); Green Twine (May Arts); Gold Glitter Tape (Michaels); Paper Punch (EK Success)

Quite honestly, it was a bit of a challenge for me since I don’t often make these types of cards – using many embellishments and patterned paper.  I had to think outside of my comfortable box and once I simplified it, the design came automatically to me!  It’s nice to stretch your style every so often!

Until next time.
