As a reward, I get to be Guest Designer this week for the latest sketch and color challenge. Check this out:
I ended up making two cards for this challenge! The first card was much more layered than I usually make and also used patterned paper - which I rarely use! So even though it's quite a pretty card, when I looked at it, I just wasn't sure.
I used a Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder on both the patterned paper and the kraft panel which I lightly went over with Vintage Photo distress ink to highlight. The central oval was sponged with Fired Brick and Vintage Photo ink. I left the center lighter than the outsides. The die cut was cut using gold foil paper and looks really pretty and shiny.
And now for the second, CAS version:
So, which one do you prefer?
