A Sketchy Card Swap
I am in the middle of a new project for the "In This House and Garden" Yahoo group. The idea is simple enough. Pick a card from a deck of playing cards and "sketch" a design for said card. This project was WAY out of my comfort zone. I am not exactly comfortable with drawing and sketching. I can't even get my stick figures to resemble anything close to stick figures. But I dove right in and gave it my best (?) effort. The size is small 1.75 by 3.5 and will be attached to a deck of cards. Each artist will do one or two cards and then make 54 copies to be divided and mailed out to each participant. Very cool, I end up with 54 amazing little works of art!
First I tried a Zentangle. Not crazy about it but I'll hang onto it anyway. Not sending this one in.
This is my version of the seven of hearts. I like this one much better. Simple and sweet.
This is my piece for the four of diamonds. I went back into my comfort zone and stamped away. I changed the bodies of the butterflies into diamond shapes. I think that this is a keeper. Like I said, this was out of my comfort zone, but a good exercise working in a new (for me) format.
