Hello again, crafty friends! We have a super fun sketch to create with this week at the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge blog and I have had a ton of fun getting my fingers all inked up and breaking out new products. So without further ado, let's get started!
details: I decided the No Worries scrapbooking kit would be perfect to use for a birthday card for my husband's upcoming 50th birthday as he's a very laid back kind of guy who loves the water. I also knew I wanted to use one of the PML pieces for the inside of the card so I planned this card for a 4 x 6" size to accommodate that. For the front of the card, I used sponge daubers to blend Cashmere, Glacier, Lagoon, and Sapphire inks for a custom background to frame this panel of white-and-Cashmere colored paper. Per the sketch, I cut and wove pieces of Blue and White Burlap Ribbon on the left side. For the large cluster of images in the bottom left corner, I used a combination of stickers and printed pre-cut images from the No Worries complements: the smallest heart is a preprinted sticker adhered to the back of one of the pre-cut pieces; the medium sized heart is another sticker adhered to a 1" circle of Cashmere cardstock; and the large heart is a preprinted die cut image placed on a 1 1/2" piece of Sapphire cardstock. The sentiment is from the No Worries scrapbooking stamp set which was inked in Glacier, Lagoon, and Sapphire using the rock and roll technique. For a little extra fun, I added 3 embellishments in the upper right corner made from the No Worries sequins combined with pieces from the gold glitter gems and blue enamel and glitter duos dots.
I am still fine tuning the inside of the card so I will share a pic of that at a later date, but I can tell you it will feature the "Good Times" PML card with the bokeh background, but I need to alter it a bit to fit my plans. I have to say, if my husband actually watched me go to all the effort I've put into this card so far he would laugh at me, but I want this birthday to be as special as he is so it's totally worth it!
