Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:
I love this week's challenge! I knew right away that I wanted a heart as the large shape on the front of the card with a Valentine sentiment. Since the Sale-a-bration See Ya Later stamp set is one of my current faves I had to use it!
I still had a bag of supplies in my car along with the leftover scraps from a card class I held last week. I knew I wanted to use the See Ya Later stamp set, so I grabbed that and a few other miscellaneous items and challenged myself to create this project with just the few things I had - and not at my house where all my supplies are ready and waiting for me! I'm really happy with how this turned out!
I started with a base of Pool Party. I used the Fresh Prints DSP paper stack and matted it with Real Red card stock. I used Pool Party Core'dinations card stock and cut out a heart with the hearts framelits and embossed with the Pretty Prints TIEF. I very lightly sanded the texture. If you sand the embossed letters too much, it will alter the look of the letters and loses the effect I was going for.
I stamped the greeting in Real Red and matted it with Real Red cardstock. I popped it up with some dimenstionals and punched out 3 banners from the same Pool Party Core'dinations. I wish you could see the subtle texture from that paper - love it!
