Freshly made sketches # 46

Hello everyone

I decided to try and meet the deadline for this week freshly made sketch, think I am just going to make it.

Base card is White distressed edges with antique linen distress ink. The Color is definitely not true, my dear grandson overstamped onto the ink pad in another Color - I have no idea which one but there is a tinge of green so go figure....my toys are so much more fun than theirs.

Anyway layered black and an off cut of Penny Black scrapbook paper. I then used an old off cut of a sample I made with my sizzix card front die A2 Eyelet and Ornate #656327 and layered on the right hand side.

Admittedly I had trouble doing this but tore out a sheet from an old dictionary, crumpled it up and added antique linen and brushed corduroy distress ink. Added some tissue tape to the edge for added interest and just a tad of Color.

Cut the largest die of Sizzix # 657575 labels fancy die in black and the size just before in White.

Stamped the phone from Hero Arts CL 502 "just saying hi" in versafine Onyx black ink on white die cut and overstamped it with my all time favourite hero Arts H2141 manuscript background in antique linen

Attached it with foam tape and finally added sentiment from same Hero Arts set on White card distressed in antique linen and layered onto black.

To finish I added some glossy accents to the centre of the phone and the numbers.

Thanks for coming round - please feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions. I love comments.

    1. Hi Candy
      I meant every word hope to tackle something like that one day - I have tried once or twice, but to me it just looks messy and incomplete. But I think one day I will hit the mark LOL
