MDUC – A Sketch!

Hi Everyone!

This week  it’s sketch time over at the MDUC blog. Perfect if you’re still working on your Christmas cards and need some inspiration to crank out those cards!

I am TERRIBLE at following sketches BUT I thought I would see how SIMPLE (with my new CAS style… haha) I could make my card following the Sketch!

Here’s a pic of the sketch – what do you think?? Did I do OK??

I must add that although not mentioned on the MDUC blog post, there was an additional challenge on top of following the sketch to ‘include WINGS’ and thus I decided to cut out Tilda with Balloon, give her some chipboard wings (wings of love) and also tuck the little XOXO into her hand. hehe I think she looks soooo cute!!

Although I didn’t take a photo, I was actually pretty clever with the tag!

I wanted to use a pre-made tag and decided I would use one of the small ones and cut the bottom using a magnolia heart tag die. I simply lined up the circle on the tag over the circle on the die and then it only cut the bottom part of the tag.  Now I am kicking myself for not taking a photo!

Here’s a close up of Tilda and her chippie wings. hehe

I coloured the wings with yellow pencil. Then I used heat activate powder glue over the top so as not to get glue in all the fine areas and I coated them with clear sparkly glitter. They look gorgeous in real life. 🙂 Don’t you hate how photos rarely capture the glistening of glitter!!

Well that’s all from me today. I’ve seen a sneaky peek of what the other gorgeous girls have created and you defintiely don’t want to miss out!

Hope to see you play along with us this week!

Big Aussie Squeezes!

    This is Beautiful Zoe! And it looks like you followed the sketch to a ‘t’! Your coloring on Tilda’s dress just blows me away! Someday I would love to be able to get the folds and such so they look so dimensional! Awesome!
