Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #7

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Hey, y'all!  We're back with a brand new Paper Sweeties sketch to start your month out right.  Check out how I was inspired.
I started this card by topping the plaid, patterned paper, which was stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "Love you much" sentiment and dressed up with a trio of aqua, enamel dots, with a piece of denim, patterned paper; framing it with White cardstock; and machine stitching, with white-threaded, straight stitches, a double frame around the combined pieces' edges.
A strip of vellum, which I die cut with the scalloped edge, was then adhered between the connection of the two patterned papers and topped with a length of aqua ribbon, which was wrapped around the prepped piece and tied off, to the right of the prepped piece, with a length of hemp twine, laced through an orange button and tied in a bow.
After adhering the prepped piece to the Kraft, cardstock, card face, I die cut both an orange, patterned, paper, heart frame and its White cardstock backing; stamped Abigail and Jake, in Jet Black ink, on the cardstock die cut; colored them with colored pencils and mineral spirits; and dressed them with clothing prepared in the same way.  The patterned, paper frame was than adhered, over the images, with foam tape; before the entire thing was backed with a piece of cheesecloth for texture and adhered, in its respective location, with foam tape.
Now, here's this month's Sketch Inspiration Challenge #7 to get you started.
