#the100dayproject : handmade card 85/100-2 : smile my friend
this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

i also managed to pick up a limited edition stamp set with a recent purchase and i have to admit, it might be the cutest thing i've seen in awhile. [i know i said that yesterday, but this is a new, different set that's adorable in a whole quarantine kinda way.]

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play and because i'm only *slightly* obsessed with rainbows and all things colorful, i decided to make a small set of cards. each one has the same overall design, as well as the same sentiment. however, each one features a different color patterned paper with diagonal tone-on-tone stripes.

one thing that i love about sketches is the freedom of interpretation. i liked the layout of this design, but decided to flip the narrow [pink] strip 90 degrees so that it would be horizontal. i also eliminated the small scattered circles, ideally gems or sequins. ordinarily i would've kept them but i decided the patterns i selected to use had enough shine and bling!
