Card Sketch October #4

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

A fun sketch this week, something different is always good to get those creative juices flowing! This one is one of those love/hate sketches. You'll either find it super easy or struggle with it. I have to say that I found this one easy than last weeks! Go figure! As always the digital template will be available free in my store for a limited time! Snag it while you can.

One of the benefits of doing it all (ie: paper, digital and hybrid) is that things never get stagnant. I mentioned last week I was having a little creative rut and this card bumped me out of it. Whenever I get in a slump my first reaction is to try using sketches, and my second reaction is to something new, because sometimes I'm just bored and need a change of direction. So I set about making this weeks card and went hybrid. The kit is an old mini kit I made last year for Trevors fund raising. Even now I still love this color pallette. Anyway once I'd decided on the kit the whole card came together REALLY easy! The front panel is all printed out, and the button is real. I have to say I really love it!
