Moving Along With The Times..Get Sketchy...


It's the turn of Team B over at Moving Along With The Times this week. Hazel our hostess has chosen a sketch as the theme for this week -

I decided to turn the sketch on it's side, so the 4 little panels are at the bottom.

This card was made on a remote playdate with Jessie and it was the first time I had paper pieced part of an image..

I chose a Big Eared Bunny digital stamp by Zlotena as my focal point and worked from there. Coloured with Promarkers of course!
All the papers are spotty ones by Pink Petticoat. As you can see I printed the balloon onto some spotty paper and cut it out and pieced it on to the stamp - clever technique that I now love!
I decided to not use 4 individual panels, I took a strip of paper and cut notches to create 'faux' panels. As I was anticipating a bigger sentiment, I ended up with a bit of blank space to the left of the card, so punched a star in the same paper as the balloon, added some bling and voila! space issue resolved..

There are lots of fun interpretations of the sketch by the team this week, so pop on over to MAWTT to have a look and join in the fun.
