Off the Edge

Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Day!  Today, Kim, who makes the most beautiful CAS cards, has a very fun and interesting sketch for us.  This sketch calls for an element to be off the edge of the card.  How cool is that?



For my card, I decided to play along with the challenge at Friday Mashup, to use either umbrellas or polka dots.  I went with both.  I'm also linking to The Challenge where polka dots are the theme.



On my white cardbase, I stamped the polka dot strip in Audrey Blue down the left side of the card.  I then stamped the sentiment in black.  Then I used my Misti to stamp my umbrella and its components onto the die-cut before popping it up with foam tape on the card base.

The umbrella was painted with clear Wink of Stella, which you can't see in the photo.  Some blue sequins and I was all done.  In hindsight, I possibly should have made the polka dot strip wider, but it's done and I ain't doing it again!




Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the amazing DT.  And as a special treat, we have the genius who created Freshly Made Sketches as a guest.  Be sure to check out Lesley's blog - she does amazing work!

This is so fresh and adorable. You must have really gotten the hang of your MISTI because your stamping of the different panels on the umbrella is spot-on. I thought that you must have paper-pieced it with polka dotted dsp. Love this, Karren!
