May 2014 Sketch Post #3

Hi Nana by Deb Blunden
Deb has applied layers of colour to her page by using her chalks.  The colours have all been worked in to compliment the masking, and the fussy cutting of the photo looks great Deb.  The flowers have been given a bit more definition to the layers by mounting them up for effect.
This is a closer look of Deb's masking, where she has applied colours by chalking.  These have come up a treat, and just the kind of things a little girl would give her Nana!  Well done Deb.
Card Sketch
Happy Birthday Card by Judy Laracy
I think this card is rich in it's simplicity.  The colours work so well together, and a few little touches add character.  The embossed strip over the masking is raised and pops out, whilst the mask has a carefree feel that has the butterflies fluttering.  The flower posy is gorgeous, well done Judy.

I Do by Zan Boyle
This is a very fresh looking layout, with the background masking toning in well with the greens.  The pink hearts have been softly masked, tying in with the pinks. The flowers work well together, giving a softness to their depth.  And it looks like it was a wonderful day too!  Well done Zan.

Off To Work I Go by Judy Laracy
Judy has used cardstock as her base background, applying her chevron mask with black ink. The embossed panel behind the photo has a nice checker plate look about it, very blokey.  The embellishments all tone in nicely, and the layout is very clean in design.  Well done Judy.
