This sketch threw me a curve! I don't have a background in art - nor do I have any type of training in graphic design which you may have noticed by now :) But one reason I enjoy designing cards is because it is out of my comfort zone and I am always learning something new. Jen's design this week is sweet as can be but I just couldn't make it come out right with paper. I finally decided to use only stamps to make it happen. While writing this post I realized the curve of my stem goes in the total opposite direction from the sketch and the border made from the new Gorgeous Grunge set should have gone all the way across the top. I never noticed it last night as I finished the card and was delighted that I "made it work!" So technically I didn't make it work but that's not the point. It's all about creating! And it takes practice to hit a curveball - I'll keep swinging - hope you do too!
Jen Brum has a wonderfully creative sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
