As my post title suggests, today's card is for the Freshly Made Sketches #185 - A Sketch by Cindy H. This is my card
. . . and this is Cindy's sketch
First I used a Ranger stencil and some Dreamweaver pearlescent embossing paste to add a bit of subtle interest to the base card. Then I set about creating my little scene for my focal image.
I used a circle punch to create a mask for the sun and then sponged a selection of Distress Inks to create a sunset. Next, I used Clearly Besotted's, 'Paired Up' stamp set to create my little scene. I made two banners with patterned papers and mounted my focal piece on a black mat with a thin border to enable it to stand out against the background.
I mounted the banners on to the base card with thin, foam tape and then mounted the focal image over that with a double thickness of foam tape on the top portion and just some tape runner for the bottom portion as that was resting on the raised banners.
Here are the rest of the pictures.
I think I will keep this one to give to my DH in July for our 18th Anniversary!
As always, thank you so much for visiting and for any comments . . . you all make my day! Have a good one! Hazel xx
