Bold and Bright geometric style

Hi friends - welcome back to another super fun sketch at Splitcoaststampers, you can see the sketch for this week below. You know - I had this GREAT idea to play with ink and paper and keep my layers to a minimum...started out pretty good, but ya know...layers happen. HA!

I flipped the sketch from horizontal to vertical. Blended on distress inks across the bottom and added some American Crafts glitter paper in black, using the white edge between the ink and glitter paper as one of the elements to the sketch. I added some striped designer paper from MFT cut with 2 different wonky circle dies (also from MFT); the center circle is actually popped up on dimensions as is the flower.

The flower is die cut from a paperback book and stamped with PTI's Beautiful Blooms II set in various distress inks (most stamped second generation). I adhered the entire flower together with a brad and topped it with a PTI button and twine. Once everything was glued together, I added some plain and polka dot vellum leaves from Hero Arts Color Layering For You flowers, the 'hi' from MFT's Happy Hellos in pink polka dot paper finished the card.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you find some time to play along with our sketch this week! Have a great week; take care!
