Sketch Starter: Masculine & Feminine Washi

It’s time for another Sketch Starter! Are you ready? 

As you might know, as a Design Team Member for Altenew, I create monthly inspiration projects that feature two distinctly different projects using the same sketch. I encourage you to give the sketch a try and share your results on social media (tag me @nicolewattcreates), or if you’re a class member here on NWC, upload a project to the comments below!

Washi for the Boys

My first take on the sketch uses the new Sea Shore washi combo along with the 1″ Gold Washi to create the background tile from the sketch. I simply tore off the pieces of washi instead of opting for clean cut lines. This helped speed up the project since I didn’t have to worry about getting square cuts!

I added in a quick sentiment using the Hello and Hugs stamp and die combo. It really made quick work of the design!

Washi for the Girls

For my second take on the sketch, I went with a loose interpretation of the background tiling. I used the Botanical Rhapsody washi, colored in with some Artist Markers. Then, finished it off with a simple sentiment strip from the Sentiment Strips stamp set.

  1. Love the washi tape card! Those stripes with the gold. And it looks so easy too do as well. Fabulous results. Thanks for the video!

  2. I like this chance to get some practice on sketch challenge ideas. I’m working on an idea and hope to submit it soon. I’m not really great at this, so I hope it qualifies. See you later on the live stream RwS.
