Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #457~Trend Week, where I'm inviting you to use HAND-DRAWN ELEMENTS on your cards/projects. Let me explain...
Given that, what are we inviting you to do? Here's a few ideas:
- use your some of your 'outline' images, left 'as is' or with just a touch of colour;
- be bold and create your own 'hand-drawn' illustrations;
- showcase calligraphy - your own or that found in your stamp collection;
- interpret in whatever fashion you see fit!
Bottom line: have fun and remember: embrace imperfection! For more ideas, do a Pinterest Hand-Drawn Elements search. So many cool ideas/images to spark your creativity...
A trio of cards from me that speak to 'simple', pretty hand-drawn elements...
Concord and 9th: Hello Lovely; Love You, Mean It
STAMPlorations: The Bee's Knees Layered Butterfly
Concord & 9th: Hello Lovely, Studio Katia Friend diecut
Truly...just simple stamping! For those of you far more artsy than I, pick up your pens and hand-draw your images! You're sure to dazzle and delight, whatever medium you choose!
Looking forward to seeing your interpretations of HAND-DRAWN ELEMENTS in the gallery.
Oh my, this is a delightful set of cards that fit the theme wonderfully and elegantly. You sure picked some winner images, Card. Beautiful work!!
Look at you go 3 cards! I do love Shirley's "layered" sets this bfly one is awesome.
Wow, 3 cards - you are awesome! I love all 3 of them, so airy and gorgeous!
You really outdid yourself this week Carol! Love all of them, but I have always been smitten for Shirley's butterflies! They are all so Clean and Fun! Great challenge by the way!!
Three fab interpretations of the theme Carol.
Love the outline bouquet with the coloured die cut sentiment, v original. :)
You have done CAS perfectly here Carol. Love all three creation. I had that butterfly set in my Wish List but unfortunately didn't get it but it is still there for another time. Love what you can do with that set. Your other two cards also shows you don't have to be an artist to showcase beautiful images. Colouring isn't something I am not good at.
All three of these are fantastic! I love how you stamped the images and created three gorgeous cards! I really like those butterflies fluttering across the card front and the simplicity of the floral cards, too.
Three fabulous cards that perfectly showcase the hand drawn look that is so popular right now!
Well aren't you the over achiever? :) All three are fabulous, Carol. This was a fun challenge once I figured out I didn't have to draw the entire card although I probably could have doodled something. ;)
I actually stopped commenting for a minute and ran over to buy the butterflies!! LOVE that soft look! And that big bouquet from Concord & 9th just keeps calling my name. You've shown me the possibilities - black/white with a colorful sentiment.
