I’ve sat here for about 5 minutes now trying to think of a witty title for this post – just not happening. Anyway, this week’s card for the sketch challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You. I really enjoy the challenges that Kazan and Laura set – I don’t know what it is about them, but for some reason they take my work to the next level (well, in my opinion anyway, LOL).
This week’s sketch was by Laura and after looking through my stuff, I decided to make it a Father’s Day card for Jarrod. Since it’s only 3 weeks away and the next 2 weekends I’m playing chauffer to Harry for the birthday party season, it’s one thing crossed of my never ending list of things to do!
The finished card is 14 cm x 14 cm Very Vanilla. The papers are from the Basic Grey Archaic 6×6 Paper Pad. The sentiment has been stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic ink on SU twill using Rough Edges Mini Alpha. The stars were punched using SU Star punches and the brads are Antique Brass. The stars have been adhered to the card using dimensionals.
While this is a really simple card it took a while to make. The first time I stamped on the twill I had got all the way to the ‘e’ when I accidently stamped it SIDEWAYS – OMG, absolutely NO way to fix that, except to start again. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.
