4 Crafty Chicks & Inkspirations
I've been making note of a lot of challenges for the last couple of weeks and not actually getting around to creating anything for them. Part of the reason is I feel like I've been inundated with sketch challenges! I find that I really struggle with them and tend to avoid them. Colour and theme challenges are my favourites. However, I decided to push myself today and combined this week's 4 Crafty Chicks colour challenge with the sketch challenge at Inkspirations.
Here's what I ended up with:
I'm not much of a pink girl usually (especially a pale pink) but I fought my anti-pink tendencies and went for it! I embossed the pink cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, punched out purple circles to fill in some of the dots and then added Diamond Glaze to them. I also added a DG border around the sentiment. It's a start but I still have a long way to go with these sketch things. I find I take them very literally and have to try and relax and let myself play with them a bit. Guess I'll just have to make more cards to practice... :)
