Posting a card today for Papertrey Ink's Make-It-Monday #69: Inspiration Into Unique Sketches.
Nichole Heady discussed how she found inspiration pieces and used them as card sketches. Yes, inspiration is everywhere! :)
Here's the sketch i chose to use:
Here's my card:
Instead of the banner strips, i have stamped the image (lines with circles) from Background Basics: Retro in different colors and (what i hope are) varying lengths. This was after stamping the same image in Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) as background. In retrospect, i should've placed some small embellishments (rhinestones, maybe) on the bottom left corner of the sentiment block to balance the sun image :)
I've also used the Picnic Plaid Impression Plate, but the effect is very faint (i've used only one embossing mat instead of two).
Thank you for taking time to visit! It means a lot to me!
