I Will Care for You
Are you enjoying the sketches we've been using lately at Tuesday Morning Sketches? I have. They have been so easy and wonderful to use, and I've really liked all the cards that I've been making using our sketches. This week, Melissa has provided another wonderful sketch, and I hope you will give it a try.
I started with a white 5 x 7" card base. The green background is a scrap from a piece I previously used. It is from a Recollections 12 x 12" pad. I debated on matting it with black since I was matting my image and my die cuts with black, but decided the white card made a nice "matting" for the green and white paper. As I said, I did mat the image (from Heartfelt Creations) with the black and punched two black circles to "mat" my cut outs.
The anchor and star fish dies are from Marianne Dies and Crafts. They went perfectly with the Heartfelt Creations paper as both images can be seen in the seascape. I lightly inked the die cuts with CTMH Oak Brown ink.
My daughter found the ribbon among my stash, and it is a perfect compliment to this card. Not only is it the "right" color, but it is slightly textured, reminding me of beach sand.
Have a wonderful week, and do take a little time out to do something you enjoy (perhaps even use our sketch and join this week's challenge).
