Easy Sketch

October 17, 2010 at 7:04 pm 2 comments

I was blog hopping today since I am feeling flu-ish and didn’t feel like doing anything else. I found this easy sketch at Butternut Sage Designs and thought I could manage this. Here is the sketch:
The challenge called for a dark mat background and a lighter card base. I have to admit, I had to make this card twice because I didn’t like the way the colours turned out the first time. This is what I eventually came up with:

Here is my recipe:

Card Stock: So Saffron, Early Espresso, Glossy White
Ink: SU markers in So Saffron, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Soft Suede & Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Happy Birthday Sentiment, Chinese Flowers 2 by Local King Rubber Stamp
Accessories: Brown satin ribbon, spellbinders tag die, yellow self-adhesive rhinestones

Thanks for having a look today!

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scrapped the first card because it wasn’t right! Glad I’m not alone. This card is gorgeous. No need to get rid of it!
