Here's the sketch challenge from SCS this week:
As soon as I saw this sketch, I thought of my Hero Arts long rectangle shadow stamp. What a perfect way to clean-and-simplify (or CASify) this sketch!
The key to this CASification is layering stamps rather than paper. The colors are analogous (side by side on the color wheel) and they are stacked from light to dark (apricot, pumpkin, rust). After finishing the stamping and adding the circle, something still seemed lacking.
When in doubt, BLING. I added the bling to the centers of the flowers on the branch and then balanced them with two on the apricot layer.
I could NEVER have done this without Roxie's awesome sketch challenge.
