iSpy Sketches–Free For All Friday


Hi there! This week the iSpy Sketches design team is taking a look back at some of our favourite sketches and we’re calling it “Free For All Friday.” I took this opportunity to alter the sketch a little more than I did the first time around and use the original as more of a “jumping-off point.” It was a great creativity booster!

I used the sketch from ISSC #14. Here’s the sketch:


and here’s my card in full-colour:


This is going to end up being a prototype for a Christmas card I make for a friend’s company. Their business colours are black and yellow – but I cheated and used dark brown instead… I hope they don’t mind! The poinsettia is a die cut by Spellbinders (one of my all-time fav's) and I cut out some Best Creations glitter paper. Have you ever used it? $3.99 a sheet, but it’s so pretty… In small doses…

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Cardshoppe; Patterned Paper: Echo Park; Glitter Paper: Best Creations; Sentiment Stamp: Jingle All the Way by Ali Edwards from Technique Tuesday; MME Twine.
