My new hybrid...
card, that is. I am NOT a digi girl by any means, but I really liked the digi products that the Get Sketchy DT got to work with this week. We got tons of different images to work with. My favorites were this bracket frame and the "cardboard" flowers.
I loved this week's sketch, and I knew that I wanted to have different colors shooting out from the focal point image. To do that, I widened each of the color swatches from the digi image. The swatches looked a lot like a paint sample, but when I widened them in my photo editing program I was able to get narrow strips which I printed on white cardstock and then trimmed with my paper trimmer.
The bracket and flower images were also easy to resize and print. I used my micro-tip scissors to cut each image out and adhere them to the front of my card. I mounted the doodled frame on pop dots to give it a little bit of dimension. The sentiment is actually three separate rub-ons that I applied before adhering to the card. (I'm sorry I don't know who the manufacturer is-I picked them up in the dollar bins at CKC Manchester last year.)
The final touch was to add a little bling-some rhinestones and gems from SEI, Imaginisce and Momenta.
I hope that you can play along with today's challenge over at Get Sketchy. The DT has some gorgeous cards for you to see!
