Card Patterns #17

Sunday, May 31, 2009

Hello everyone! Sketch #17 today and that means it's the last one for the Spring card patterns design team..A few of the girls will be leaving us this week, so sad!! But I have been truly inspired and happy to be able to create alongside these talented ladies. It has been wonderful knowing all of you: Tracy, Sonya, Marie, Rae and Ingrid. These friendships truly do last, and I hope all of you the best in your future endeavours! Please come by and say hi still :) That being said, I'll be staying on the team for another term :) Here's an Anniversary card I madewith my take on the sketch:
Here's a closer look on those flowers all glittered up and copic coloured. The flowers are printed out in 3 different sizes to create a variety using Adobe photoshop cs3. You should be able to play with the stamp using alot of other basic programs like Microsoft paint etc. The edges of the flowers are lightly inked with 'vintage photo' distress ink and popped up with dimensionals. The edges of the card base are inked too, just to add abit more depth.

All the lovely digital stamps used are from DigiShack & they're again our VERY generous prize sponsor for this week :) Check them out here. Digital stamps are so IN right now, and they're really fun too! Imagine being able to change the sizes/dimensions of a stamp whichever way you wanted! Now I just have to get my printer to print on thicker papers......it keeps getting stuck, any one have ideas how to make this work??
On another note away from the wonders of the digital age of stamping and frustrating printer woes, A lot of exciting new things will be happening at Card Patterns in the upcoming weeks, what with the new/old summer design team and also great new sponsors!! Remember to check in often and take part on the sketch challenges, I won't say anymore *lol*
In the meantime, go link up your sketch over at Card Patterns. I know there has been problems with Mr Linky but Michelle B. the owner/co-ordinator extraordinaire has fixed it! Seriously, a problem that can be fixed with a little money is not really a problem *lol* Been hearing my guy say that a number of times today..
Have fun!!
