Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 170

I have been making so many adult cards, I just had to have some fun with a kid card!   This week's OWH Sketch 170 Challenge was also a great way for me to use a paper I love but due to the size of the graphics (it's from a 12x12 sheet), it wants to overwhelm a card.  The sketch layout let me place it as a background with top panels and all of the busyness comes across in a calmer fashion while supplying lots of color.

Details:
  • Digital image from Bugaboo, colored with Copics
  • Paper Smooches sentiment stamp
  • Echo Park Happy Days papers

  1. Lee Mae this is a great use for the larger scaled paper in your 12 x 12 packs. Smart thinkin". That little girl does look like she is sitting missing someone special. Some family member will surely know they are missed. I love everything about this card.

  2. It's such a cute and sweet card with that precious image! I love how she's sitting on the edge of the box with her legs dangling! WTG on using that loud dsp for your background! It all works perfectly together!

  3. This is so cute! I think it works very well, it's TOUGH using up those larger scale patterns on cards. :)

  4. Fabulous card, really love the background dp. So brave to give a try, your thoughts about making it work is a design lesson in itself! TFS!

  5. Fabulous!

    Funny coincidence, I'm in the process of moving everything out of my room so I can paint it and I'd given up on my 12x12 papers, but you so rocked using one on a card I'm going to pull out some of the larger prints I love but was saving in case I went back to scrapping. What a great idea! I also love how well the papers go together ( harder without a 6x6 coordinating pad) and how you put the focus on the little girl by changing her border to those scallops and fussy cutting her legs out of the white image! TFS such great inspiration!

  8. Fantastic card Lee Mae! The plain, or nearly plain, color blocks is a great way to camo the big print of the paper. It's still bright and bold without overpowering the card and sweet image. Thanks for playing!
