It's been awhile since I've done a 2 Sketches 4 You sketch, and I knew I wanted to use one of my Hambly Screen Prints overlays. I thought Ashley's bonus sketch would work really nice. Here's her sketch:
And here's what I came up with (and check out all that color):
Cardstock: Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Pattered Paper: Aqua Mist Bitty Box Basics (Papertrey Ink); Twigs & Weeds (Hambly Screen Prints)
Stamps: Thanks (American Crafts)
Ink: Onyx Black VersaFine (Tsukineko)
Ribbon: Aqua Mist Twill (Papertrey Ink)
Buttons: Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Die Cut: Large Rectangle Nestability (Spellbinders)
I started with my folded 5.5"x4.25" card base, die cut my rectangle with my Nestability (use a craft knife if you don't have a die cut). Then I adhered my overlay to the back and embellished from there.
Just a few other things I wanted to mention about my blog redesign. You can now search my blog. Just type in whatever you are looking for! I've tried several searches and they all worked great!
Also, I've added a contact me button. If you ever have any questions about a project or if your just curious about something ... please don't hesitate to email me!
