Here is my card for this weeks sketch. I used the image, Basket of apples, from Paper Pretties, who is our monthly sponsor. This was definitely a challenge for me, as I am so used to coloring people for my images. However, I LOVE this apple basket, and think that this card turned out simply beautiful. I will definitely have to use objects as my images more often. I just love it.
I used some of my K&Company Mega Stack paper for the design paper of this card. I LOVE this stack, as it has every color and pattern you can think of. I loved the red and cream gingham pattern and thought it was the perfect pairing to the apple image.
I colored my image with copics -
Apples - R20, R22, R27, R24, R29, W3, E35, E33, G20, G24
Basket - E33, E31, E35, E27, E25, E29, E51
Blanket - R24, R27, R29, W00, W1, W3
Background - W00, W1, W3, R00, E50
Here is the artsy view of my card. I used my Lacey Circle Nestie to cut out the background circles, and then used the nestie as a stencil to trace and cut out the center from the design paper. The red and white ribbon is from my stash, and I added white pearls to the edges, as the sketch suggests. The flowers I used are from Iamroses.com, and they are a red rose, and two yellow cherry blossoms. I punched out the leaves with my Martha Stewart punch.
I hope you will join us this week at Midnight Madness, and I cant wait to see how you interpret the sketch.
