52 CCT August Sketch Challenge

I am so excited!  It's my turn over at 52CCT to be a hostess for the whole month of August.  I have some great challenges so stayed tuned each week!

The first challenge and the first Saturday of the month is always a sketch challenge.  The sketch I chose is called a Triptych Sketch.  What is a Triptych Sketch?  
Triptych is a work of art divided into three panels.  It leaves all kinds of room to use your imagination to create a beautiful card and I can't wait to see what you came up with.  Remember, a sketch is only a tool to help you get your ideas flowing. You can flip it around to see what works for you. 

Here is the Triptych Sketch.  When you click on the sketch, it will take you to the challenge site 52CCT.

I flipped the image to the left so the 3 spots in the corner ended up in the left top corner.
My 3 boxed areas became windows to see outside trees and snow.  The stamp I used is actually called "Natural Tree Triptych".  Unfortunately, I cannot find the company who made the stamp as I have had it awhile now.  It is 3 snow covered trees placed just like the boxes in the sketch.  Each was colored with Copic #B28 for night sky and stamped with tiny SU snowflakes. 


I have a Halloween punch that punches out to make blood dripping.  I punched out a long piece and turned them into icicles by making the rounded bottom of the drip a little more pointed like an icicle. I used Stickles Diamond to sparkle them up like ice and I also did the 3 trees as well.  Once dried, I glued them to the back of the window... to hang like ice dripping off the eves on the outside.   Each window was glued over a tree with the two outside windows popped up.     


To finish off the card, I die cut Sizzix Christmas phrase "Noel" twice (1 red and 1 green) and glued them together... the green slightly off set from the red.  Here is the finished card.


Don't forget to check out what the other Design Team members did with the sketch at 52cctblogspot.com.  
Hope you get to play with this Triptych sketch as well!
