Sunshine and Rainbows - Retrosketches #85

by Joanne James17. October 2013 21:51

 

I managed to grab a quick hour of crafting today in between other jobs and as I debated with my self whether or not to brave the washing line or resort to the tumble dryer, the sun broke through the clouds and I had a sudden flash of crafting inspiration for this week's sketch at Retrosketches. So instead of my planned post, I thought I'd sneak this one in before the close. Here is the inspiration sketch:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I have been so 'in the zone' with Christmas cards that I've been struggling to look at sketches and think about anything else. I think we can all agree that this card couldn't be further from Christmas if it tried! It cheered me up no end though - yellow is one of my favourite colours. I used some retired 'sunshine and sprinkles' DSP (eliminating the and a row of coloured overlapping circles to create a rainbow border in place of the scalloped edge. The perfect background for one of the 'Feel Goods' stamped sentiments, along with the sunny yellow of course.

Lastly, a quick reminder: only 4 more days to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s incredible joining offer where you can sign up and receive all the benefits Stampin' Up! has to offer for just £25. Click here to read more details about this rarest of offers - I would love to welcome you to my team.

Back soon with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

This is so bright and lovely.  I have those papers and never made good use of them this summer, but this is perfect!  Love the rainbow "scalloped" border. So cheery! Great take on this week's sketch! -Katie :
