This week Bev has another sketch challenge for us.
Sketches are great because you can use whatever colours you like, so you just need to keep within the parameters of the sketch. You can of course switch it to portrait rather than landscape but I decided to keep it as is this time around.
It was tipping down with rain when I was trying to work out what I wanted to use, and believe it or not, that was my inspiration. One of the new sets in the catalogue is called Weather Together and it seemed quite appropriate.
I used Pool Party card stock for the card base. A piece of Whisper White that I had run through my Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, was then layered on top.
I did go a little off piste from the sketch, because I used Perfect Plum banners instead of plain rectangles and I also decided to have them at different lengths. The umbrella canopy and sentiment was stamped in Perfect Plum and the handle in Pool Party to bring everything together.
As always, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
