It’s Monday and I’m here with another entry for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge. This week it is sketch challenge 592. It is a great sketch, well balanced and easy to work with.
My process this week started with the Thank You sentiment die. I saw it laying on my craft table and I wondered if it could fit the sketch. So I cut it out to measure it on the card base and then it started to come together. This sketch has three bubbles, with the thank you sentiment being one I was wondering what to add as the other too. I remembered that I had a pile of colored images in the living room (I do most of my coloring at my sofa) with two little bees. So I picked up the pile and added the bees to the card. I felt it was a little bit to empty, so I added the tree behind the thank you sentiment, it was now coming together. The last part of the sketch is a rectangle that looks like it runs around the card with a opening on the left hand side. As the images was colored with pencils very softly, I wanted the background to be soft too. So I went with my favorite technique, smooching, and used distress inks for it, i did do a little bit of splatters just to break up the color a little bit.
Did you like this way of explaining my thought process through out making the card? Also if you want to see more of my sketch challenge entries, you can find them all HERE.
