Hi and welcome to the latest sketch challenge from the team at Freshly Made Sketches where our hostess, Linda Callahan, has got us all trendy-like with a slimline card design.
I had in mind to put an arrangement of flowers in the bottom left corner and a big sentiment across the body of the card and this is what I came up with:
Instead of a floral arrangment, I used a magnolia branch stamp. The background was stenciled with Speckled Egg Distress Ink and crackle paste to give a fun texture - but it did warp the cardstock considerably so next time I'll be using thicker card.
The sentiment is stacked 3 high with the top layer being black velvet paper for a lovely luxurious look.
I hope you'll join us this week. Be sure to check out the wonderful cards made by the rest of the DT.
Thanks for visiting.
