Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch.
My newest favoritest choicest bestest-loved paper is Basic Grey's Out of Print. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So, I went in search of a sketch I could follow that would highlight the paper and found one the fit perfectly at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. In fact, while paper is always a fundamental element to any card, I would say these papers, literally, decorate the card.
I don't have anyone in mind for this card, and will probably add a sentiment when an occasion arises, but maybe not. Hmmm. . . I'm thinking. What do you think?
I used a fun technique on the birdcase. First I heat embossed it in opaque white, then in clear enamel, and it looks like an aged white birdcage IRL. This probably sounds weird, but I really like it when I use a technique that makes an element almost look like I purchased it that way, yet anyone who takes the time to look at it will know I did it myself.
