Hello there! Today I have a card to share for the July Get Sketchy with Joni challenge over on the WPlus9 blog! Here is this month's sketch:
I totally love how Joni used watercolor on her card to add more interest to the diagonal split in the card sketch so I wanted to the the same thing. I started off with an A2 size card base which I covered in Lawn Fawn Let's Polka patterned paper. Then, using the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy dies, I diecut the cross stitched panel from Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I cut a strip on a diagonal from the center of that panel and then watercolored along each edge of the cut using my Peerless watercolors. I stamped, and watercolored the blooms and leaves from the Doodle Buds stamp set, with my Stabilo 68 pens, and then diecut them when they were completely dry. I adhered my watercolor pieces to the card base with foam tape and then adhered the flowers and leaves, some with a glue pen and some with foam tape. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Love Mom stamp set.
That's all for now... thanks for stopping by! :)
