You Matter

Hi and welcome to another fabulous sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches.  What do you think of our new look?  Is it not fresh and clean - just what this challenge is all about!  Thanks to the legendary Jennifer Timko for her hard work in creating the new look.  This week our sketch hostess is the fabulous Jen Mitchell and she has such a versatile sketch for us.

I flipped the sketch to fit the orientation of my sentiment and came up with this card:

I stamped the Slate card base with the You Matter background stamp using Versamark ink.  The ink-blended panel was sponged then I flicked water on to add some interest.  The sentiment stamp is more NBUS that I white-embossed onto black and fussy cut before popping up on foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog to check it out and while you're there enjoy the inspiration provided by the rest of the Design Team.

Ink:  Brushed Pewter Distress Paint, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade Distress, Versamark
