Comments Off on Sketch Challenge

As promised here is Lianne’s sketch for our challenge this month, all the design team who used this sketch loved it so we can’t wait to see what you do with it. To take part all you have to do is create a layout or card using this sketch as your inspiration and post a link to your creation in the comments box by the Monday the 8th November. Alternatively you can email your entry over to sarah@sarahscardsltd.com. The winner will be chosen by the design team and will win a £10 e-voucher to spend in the shop and an opportunity to join the design team in creating an example page for the December challenge.

Last month the sketch challenge was won by Katherine, she has joined us this month and created this stunning page. Here is how she created her layout.
“I used Basic Grey Kioshi and some Prima pastiche papers. I cut out my circle (using a plate) and then cut some strips of paper lace, made with my MS punch; I cut the lace up into sections and then stuck them around the edge of my circle. To give the page a rough distressed look I crinkled the edges of all my pieces of paper. I used some co-ordinations white wash paper to mount the photo and make the lace and sanded these. I then made some water distress flowers out of the Kioshi papers, adding some glitter and prima gem swirls. I tried to keep the colour tones quite pale so the crashing waves in the photo stood out.”

The design team have also been busy have a play with the sketch and have come up with some gorgeous pages.
Lianne has used some October Afternoon Seaside papers, perfect for the theme of her page.

Lou has rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left.


Sarah created her page using Cosmo Togetherness papers, the edging to the circle has made using the EK Success open scallop punch.

Rachael has used the same paper range as Sarah, the circle border has been created using a small circle punch.
