I’m a week late getting to the Prairie Paper & Ink sketch challenge (AMYRS77) but I liked this sketch . I love yellow and black together. I have had this beautiful Paper Crate patterned paper for a few years. When I saw it on my paper shelf, I just knew I wanted to use it! My card base is Basic Black and I added a layer of pale yellow. I framed the patterned paper panels with Basic Black for a little contrast. The floral image if from Hero Arts (I think). I colored the flowers with 4 shades of copics. I didn’t want to add any more color, so I filled in the stems with my S-U Basic Black marker. I cut out and layered the floral image with my nesties and popped it up for a little dimension. The ribbon is Very Vanilla grosgrain, but I think it has a little bit of a yellow tinge to it, and I like the added contrast against the polka dot paper. I added one of my Baba’s black buttons and just adhered it with a glue dot. The black rhinestones are self-adhesive. It’s a busy card, but I like the way it turned out. I’ll add a sentiment to the inside. Thanks for having a look!
