absc005 - Helen Celebrates Christmas
Good Morning! - It's time for the latest sketch for Annabelle Stamps (absc005)
This week I have taken a few "liberties" with the sketch. Hopefully you'll be able to see the general idea as I explain my process for creating this card.
First I wanted to use the image, Helen from (Helen's Party) so you could see that it can be used for cards other then Birthday type cards. I wanted to add the present and also create a Poinsettia flower embellishment for the (bow like piece on the sketch). This meant "flipping" the sketch and moving the focal image to the right since the flower embellishment would have been right next to the present had I followed the sketch as is shown. Are you with me still...I know it confused me but I like the end result.
I paper pieced Helen's Clothes and the present. The Poinsettia was done using 5 Petal Punch.
Don't forget to check out the other DT members blogs for the Sketch cards. Also I believe you still have time to get in on a chance to win $20 Gift Certificate to Annabelle Stamps Store if you participate in the sketch challenge absc004 from last week.
