It's our third week at Colours and Sketches - the new challenge blogs for lovers of the CAS style. This week it's a sketch challenge -
As you will see, I've taken a bit of a liberty and used an oval rather than the rectangle, but you can stil easily recognise the sketch.
I started with the pheasant 'tile'. I first stamped the pheasant and grasses images onto a piece of mount board and then used distress inks to add colour, one was Moss green and the other I forget! Then, using first fine clear embossing powder and then ultra thick I built up several layers on the top, creating a ceramic tile effect. The rest was easy! Some red cardstock, and two matching DSPs from Stampin' Up. I haven't added a sentiment as I wasn't sure whether I wanted to use this as a Christmas card or as a (male) birthday card, so I will probably stamp the required one inside at the time of sending!. Here's a close up of that tile.
Do have a look at our new challenge blog, the other members of the DT also have created some fab cards with this sketch.
