I happened to see the CAS(E) this sketch challenge blog & instantly liked it :) many different approaches on a basic layout, therefore a great opportunity to push our limits & think out of the box..
This is the basic sketch:
(link to the challenge below)
Here's what I have come up with:
I've flipped the orientation of the image.
Steps follow & digital remix at the end:
To begin with, am a recent beginner when it comes to paper crafts & so I don't have too many supplies. But that doesn't have to stop me from creating what I want :) it may not be perfect like stamping but am happy with the results.
I took reference from net & hand drawn all the elements.
For the bg, I have applied two shades of blue pigment ink.
For the sentiment, I used a collage of many stamp sets using masking technique to put them all together in place. I cut out & stuck Little hearts in envelope as well as the sentiment.
For the snowy effect, I needed more control. So I went for random dots with my gel pen rather than splashes with paint/gesso.
Stuck the base to the card stock 4 1/4" × 5 1/2"
For the digital remix, I always wanted a different sentiment for this scene. So I applied some filters , added a new text & a cute clipart from picsart valentine collection.
Hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as I did while making. (Only con is that my glue tape runner got messed up & I guess it won't work anymore:(:( )
It happens. Cheers.
Create. Have fun.
