Blue Hello

Hi and welcome!  This week, I have the fun of being hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and I came up with what I hope is a simple sketch that you can unleash your creativity on :)


For my card, I wanted to have some fun with the background and do some camouflaged die-cutting.


I sponged Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire onto a panel of watercolor paper, then flicked some water over top.  Once that was dry, I die-cut the large Hello from the panel and also four pieces of white cardstock.  They were then stacked back into the watercolored panel and the panel was adhered to a white card base.

I die-cut a pierced frame and used foam tape to place that on the watercolored piece.  I finished with a few sequins and called it done!


Thanks for visiting!  The rest of the design team have some fabulous cards using my sketch, so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Ink:  Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire
Cardstock:  White, watercolor
Dies:  Big Hello (SSS), Pierced Rectangle Frame (MFT)
Accessories:  Sequins

Cheers
Karren

What a stunning background. I love that the "hello" is clearly there but doesn't take away at all from the background.
