Happy MLK Day! I hope some of you have the day off and can get a little crafty...I have some items on my to-do list, but a bunch are creative ones! Love having an extra day to tackle some more of that to-do list - I'm close to ready for CHA, but there are a couple tasks I still need to cover.
Today's card is based on a suggested number shouted out on Facebook when I asked for a sketch to use on Saturday....here's the sketch:
The sentiment is made with stickers in the kit....I made the banner hanging off one side when I realised trying to spell it out that it'd be too wide. Add a snip of scissors and you can make something look more intentional! heehee. The chair stamp is one of the Christmas gifts I got this year from my dear friend Samantha...I paper pieced the seat and hand trimmed the stamp. Piercing was done around the card after layering...it gives the piercing real depth if you use a super thick pad (I love my Bazzill piercing mat! Perfect size for cards, and the Tonic/Tim Holtz Craft Pick can really stab deeply through the paper). Stitching drawn with a pen. The vertical striping in the black piece is washi tape, also in the kit. Papers are by Jillibean Soup (yellow floral) and Crate Paper (pink).
The biggest problem with this sketch was the ribbon element...I didn't take any ribbon with me to stamp club! Ack! No ribbon, no copics, I think I went temporarily insane! Anyway - I nearly tucked that little corner snippet of paper under the bottom where ribbon would go, but it looked funky, so I tipped it off the side instead.
There you have it...day two! Can't wait for you to see what I've got coming for tomorrow :)
Biggest problem with this sketch? Agh, I didn't take any ribbon with me to stamp club on Saturday! So...this card is missing that element.
