Ink Stained Card Sketch 4-2-10


Seems like it's been a long week here ~ ds's Spring Break started today so I guess we were waiting for that.

I have had several requests for more specific collage card sketches. Sketches that show exactly where to place things to make it look more "collage" in style without it looking un-put together. I guess that's how to say it ~ anyway, I normally don't think about collage ahead of time ~ it just sort of happens so this was a challenge for me - LOL!!

I hope you like the results and it makes collage cards a bit easier.

Collage Card

My card has an Easter feel to it since of course Easter is just a few days away but you could substitute any embellishment or other bits you have on hand. The 3 smaller images could be stamped images or Vintage Postcard images (like the ones I share on Sunday's). I stamped the background and inked/distressed lots of edges but again...totally optional.
