Heartfelt Sketch

Guess what I made?!

It's another sketch card! I really love sketches and the way two people with the exact same sketch can see completely different things. Since Get Sketchy went down I haven't found a really good sketch challenge. If you know of one please help a girl out :)

This card is based on another sketch from Kristina and of course a little technique too!!

I started by using the faux letterpress technique I saw in Jennifer's inspiration showcase. I inked up my embossing folder (Sizzix, Damask) with soft pool ink. I embossed the piece then cut it to 1 and 1/2 by 5 1/4. I cut two more thin strips of white that I colored using worn lipstick and dried marigold. I wanted the color to be bold so I went ink pad to paper. I added them to the card base then stamped my sentiment (Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages). I then cut out the hole with my spellbinders die.

The hearts were die cut (Cricut, George and Basic Shapes) and then inked. For the big heart I colored the entire piece with dried marigold (again ink pad to paper) then stamped (Hero Arts, Antique Brocade) with worn lipstick. The smaller heart was colored with soft pool ink then covered with stardust stickles. To finish it off I added some pen work around the circle and 3 black pearls.

One more card to share today then I'll be off to play some more hehe!
