Card Sketch October #5

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Is everyone ready for Halloween? I thought this week I'd go a little bit themed with the sketch and I added a basic spider shape, but it could be any kind of embellishment! This sketch is based on a card I made for halloween, which I will share tomorrow :) As usual if you make a card with the sketch be sure to link me up in the comments as I love to come check them out!

Like I mentioned, the sketch is based on a card I made, and the sketch is VERY similar to the card so I thought I'd go awol on this weeks and change it up a bit. This is a hybrid card, the center sentiment panel is made in photoshop using wordart I created. I chose colors from the frame and I am quite happy with the results. Seem to be very into making my own sentiments lately. This is the third such card in two weeks!
