Create: Sketches -- Sketch #3

Well, I had the day off today, so I decided to work on a card and a layout for Sketch #3 from Create: Sketches.

Here's the sketch:


And I'll start with the card, since I made it first. I used all Papertrey Ink products. I diecut and stamped the largest Friends Til The End bloom & the leaves with Versamark onto vellum cardstock and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I took ink and Q-tips and coloured in the images, for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Coloured Vellum Flowers. I layered these onto some white cardstock that I impressed with my hexagon cover plate and inked with my Tim Holtz blending tool. I added a sentiment from Boutique Borders: Birthday, stamped onto a die cut double ended banner. I added some buttons and twine to finish it off (& to cover a bit of extra embossing powder. ;)  )


(Sorry for the blurry sentiment-- it looks much better in real life!)

And here's my layout, which I made using Fancy Pants patterned paper, diecuts and stickers.


For my title, I used the hello banner and added it to a wooden skewer to make a flag. I also added another banner that I cut with my PTI Get A Handle On It banner and my Modern Uppercase Alphabet dies. The skewer was quite thick, so I doubled-up my dimensional adhesive on the houndstooth patterned paper below it.


I was going to add the PTI Pedal Pusher bike, but it was bigger than mine in the photo, so I decided to use this Flair instead, along with a Fancy Pants sticker.


And I added two stickers to a round sticker on the sheet that said Happy Day.  And here's a close up of my journaling.


Thanks for looking!
