Unscripted Sketches 185

           

Today I have a card to share with you for Unscripted Sketches … or at least I hope it’s for that anyway.  I’m not certain when the challenge closes for the week, just that there’s a new one every Saturday morning … it’s Friday evening now, so I hope I’m in time!  I haven’t played along with the monthly PIGGYBACK CHALLENGE before … it’s a monthly optional addition to the sketch, and this week, it’s dry embossing.  As I love the texture embossing gives, I’ve included it.

I’ve kept the card pretty CAS, with the main image being a die cut nesting in it’s own frame … cutting out the frame to go around the die cut meant I could pop it up with foam dots to give dimension.  The two were matted onto pink to pick up some of the colours in the hearts and even though it doesn’t show well on the photo, I glossed the hearts.  The only other addition was a strip of swiss dots embossed card, also matted onto pink and with the dots picked out in green, again to go with the hearts.  I know the embossed strip wasn’t on the sketch, but I used artistic licence … for me it draws the eye to the sentiment strip on the image … and I liked it!!

Recipe:  Cardstock:  American Crafts, Docrafts,  Image: Craftwork Cards,  Glossing:  Sakura Gloss Pen,  Colour: Promarker,  Tools: Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug EF.

That’s it for tonight … for those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, I hope you had a wonderful celebration with lots of fun and joy around family and friends.  Thanks so much for your visit … Anita 🙂

    Anita, this is gorgeous! I absolutely love the softness of the colors and the design elements. Lining up the polka dot panel with the sentiment banner really does bring all the attention to the sentiment and the pretty stamped hearts. LOVE the white space! Thanks for supporting our Unscripted Sketches challenge blog 🙂 Geri
