I look forward to Sunday's sketch from OWH and when I saw today's, I thought it would be sooo easy....I was wrong! Waaah (that's my whine!)
I tried using the sketch on three different cards (which I'm not showing) and none of them worked for me. I was using browns/blacks and decided to switch to red/blue - nope - didn't work either.
Meanwhile, I check the blog during the day and see that lots of crafty ladies are turning out great cards with the sketch. So, I switched to green. I realized my issue was that the middle layer needed something - embossing - to give that bit of interest I was missing.
Here's the card:
I added a bit of twine - totally copied this from Kristie's card - as well as the sentiment under my image. The stamp is from Hero Arts "Going" set. I really like this sketch and it just took me a while to find my happiness with it.
I've also made another set of four cards like this:
The airplane is from Stampers Anonymous and I embossed it and the Hero Arts greeting.
During my shopping this week, I found a 6x6 Basic Grey pad in Joann's for 97 cents. Score! Now I've got to use it all up!
I hopy ya'll had a nice weekend - I finally got some things done that I've been procrastinating about and that always feels good. Take care - tomorrow is Design Boot Camp - see ya'll there!
