For my card, I went with a stenciled look.
There's a bit of NBUS in this card - the Simon Says Stamp Fog ink is a beautiful, soft shade of gray and blends beautifully! I very carefully sponged it over a new stencil after masking off an area on the card base. I then sponged onto a panel of Whisper White before layering that onto so Fog cardstock.
For the die-cut sentiment, I used a DTP technique with a new-to-me Archival inkpak called Viridian, which is a beautiful minty-green color. After die-cutting I clear-embossed the sentiment for more dimension. I layered several black die-cuts under the Viridian layer to give a raised look. The stamped sentiment is from a Winnie & Walter set. Big white enamel dots on a couple of die-cut stars finished off the card.
Thanks for visiting. Be sure to check out the gorgeousness presented by the rest of the design team and I hope you find the time to give this sketch a go yourself.
