Card Recognition

keep in touch/blue & yellow



I used last week's 2 Sketches 4 You with Kim's Off the Wall Craftiness colors, but since I said I had another lovely sunflower waiting for a home, I thought I'd use the same colors for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You. I'm also really excited about this month's Hero Arts theme- keeping in touch. I love general cards like that and I've got a few HA sentiments that are just perfect. I started off with little white dots along the top and the bottom (b/c I'm literal to a fault and want to copy sketches almost exactly most of the time), but then I decided I'd do some faux stitching, love how totally off it is, just like how I'd sew if I owned a sewing machine.

Materials: Hero Arts sunflower and sentiment, W Plus 9 woodgrain, PTI kraft, Spotlight yellow card stock, Stampin Up blue card stock, Versacolor blue ink, white gel pen, versamark, Stampin Up watercolor pencils and blender pen

I adore all these elements, your faux stitching the wood grain that isn't a perfect square, so rustic, so fun. Fun fun fun card!
