Sketch 134

Sketch #134 is up at Unscripted Sketches and here is my take on it.  These sketches are a great way to use up some scraps and I have a couple more cards for Operation Write Home, hence the Valentine theme.

It's pretty close to the sketch, flipped on its side and I added a couple more layers. Instead of the three accent pieces I used the "love" stamp and a couple of punches.

I finished off the inside with a scrap of the background paper matted on black card stock.

Then I decided to use the flamingo stamp in the set.  I kept the sketch on its side and moved the thee accent pieces into one again with the tab punch and put it on the inside of the border instead of the outside.


The pink heart on the above "love" is started off as a clear acrylic heart, I just used my Melon Mambo ink to give it a little color. I punched the pink background and layered it onto blue cardstock to finish off the inside.
Thanks for stopping by.
