Hi! Welcome to the Sketch blog hop! The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! Be sure to check back on Sunday, as there will be some bloggers posting cards on day 2. So sit back & be inspired.
If you've just joined the hop from my blog and want to start at the beginning, start here.
I decided to go with a friendship card for my project. I used stamp sets by Hero Arts and then colored with Copics and accented the hearts with Stickles.
You will notice that I didn't follow the sketch to the "t". I sometimes use a sketch as a starting point and may sometimes deviate a little, depending on my preference or what I'm working with. One change I made was to not use an embellishment in the middle right section of the card. I felt that the cluster of hearts on the branch added "weight" to that area, so adding another embellishment would have thrown off the balance of the card. I also did not add ribbon under the sentiment. I had already matted my sentiment and did not have room to include ribbon or twine because the sentiment was so large. I'm still happy with the card, though! Thanks for looking!
