BAM, WOW!!...Guest Designer for CASE(E) this Sketch Challenge #218


I'm delighted and excited to be guest designing with the DT for CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #281.

I admit, that center panel, with its straight lines, had me a tad worried, as all I could think of was a blended background that would, inevitably, be crooked.  Then...BAM!  Idea sparked!  In fact, two ideas....

Both cards feature Uniko Studios's Explosion! and Explosion! Additions.  Score lines in the first card reflect the shaded panel, stamped with word images from both sets. I was aiming for Batman colours with this one...until I messed up using a light purple instead of a light blue! Oh well...close....

My second uses the same sets, along with the Background Blocks: Halftone stamp. Colour theme: Superman.

So yes...a slightly 'different' translation of the sketch, but hopefully close enough to offer a wee bit of inspiration.

Thank you soooooo much, Chrissy and the CAS(E) this Sketch team, for inviting me to play alongside you! I had a BLAST making these cards!
