A Sketch for You to Try

This last weekend I tried out i {heart} to stamp's Sketch For You To Try. You can view the sketch HERE.

I don't think I will be as long winded as I was on the last post. See here are just a few things to take note of:

I stamped the star from the Studio G Clear Stamps in Cool Caribbean ink, popped it up on a dimensional, stuck it to the card and then added Crystal Effects to it. Crystal Effects is usually the last thing I do to a card. That way I know I won't smudge it and mess up the card.

I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig with the stamped circles from All In A Row. I wanted to make sure that they were placed in the center of the Old Olive strip of card stock.

The "just for you" sentiment is layered with three circles. I used a Chocolate Chip marker to make little lines around the bottom 2"circle. It helps tie it in with the circles with lines on the Designer Paper.

After making this card, there is something I discovered about my "card making skills". I think I find it easier using designer paper that has smaller patterns on it rather than large ones. Like these large circles. I like the end result better when I've used patterns that are more subtle and not as bold. But it is always good to try something new.

Well, that's it for now.
