I was out of the loop for a few weeks because of issues with my computer, but I’m back for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #110.
I started with a textured white cardstock base and added a layer of Crystal Blue Cardstock. When I saw the sketch my first immediate thought was to use washi tape for the background strips but I couldn’t figure out a way to make it work. So instead I grabbed my Score Board and randomly scored lines on the blue cardstock. Next I grabbed a scrap piece of the same textured white cardstock and I heat embossed a bird from the Happy Birds Stamp Set using White Embossing Powder. I then used a couple Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry & Mustard Seed) to color the cardstock. I matted that piece of cardstock onto another piece of the textured cardstock that gets its shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge. The sentiment, from the retired Happy Birthday Stamp set, is heat embossed using White Embossing Powder directly onto the blue cardstock. I love how the sentiment has a flow to it…almost like the words are singing right on the paper! I added a few Bitty Sparkles & Mini Staples to finish things off.
