This sketch challenge was a little odd. You see, the sketch was sort of ambiguous. Was it a large piece of paper with the corners torn off, or the corners of another piece laid over a large piece? I didn’t know. People will wonder for centuries, but it was a perfect choice for this card.
Now this card is for my friend’s birthday. We always say that we’re Lucy and Ethel. She’s Lucy. Just sayin’.
I shamelessly stole this card idea from JBGreendawn (Stacy). The minute I saw it on her blog, I went and ordered the stamps to make it. HAD to have it.
Now, this one is the large piece with the corners cut off of it. I stamped the old ladies onto the Kraft paper with some ink spot that Unity sent me with my kit of the month order, and then layered it on the black. I think I prefer this one over the next.
This is what the sketch looks like. See what I mean? It’s hard to tell what you’re supposed to do. I think, considering that I just now saw that two, I was supposed to tear TWO rows of paper like that one up there. Oh well. I failed. Shoot me.
And on this one, I tore corners off the black paper and glued them to the kraft paper square. I like it, I do. I just like the other better.
Here they are side by side.
Then, the reason I LOVE this card? Well, as usual, I go for the WORDS. So, the sentiment shown in this brilliant masterpiece of rubbery goodness?
