Scribbly Lines

This card was made for the challenges at CASology, Color Throwdown and CAS(E) this Sketch.

It took a while to come up with something for the horizontal lines on the sketch.  In the end I used the tails on various stamps in the Handwritten Borders set.

The central panel was stamped with Seedless Preserves, Crushed Olive and Mustard Seed inks.  The sentiment was stamped with Archival Black ink and then run through a stitched border die before spritzing with Teal Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  It looks quite subtle in the photo above but I hope you can see it in the close-up below.

I also spritzed the card base in the top right corner.

Thanks for visiting.
