Time for another Waltzing Mouse sketch. Actually I'm a little later joining than I had planned, but hey it's better than not at all :) Here is this week's sketch:
Now, I pretty much always interpret sketches very literally. That's just me~lol. But I couldn't with this one. Right off, I didn't have a anything to use for the star. So that kind of threw me since I couldn't exactly follow it. Maybe it was good for me?! Anyway....this is what I came up with:
So....is it too different from the sketch?! I decided to use a heart instead of the star. I embossed it with my swiss dots folder and inked it a little with Spun Sugar distress ink. I don't think you can see it very well, but I stamped some little circles from Nutcracker Sweet randomly on the kraft panel with some Antique linen ink before stitching it down. The "with love" is from Vintage Ornaments. I tried for a more shabby/vintage look for this card. I've tried it a couple of other times, but never really liked the results. It turned out better than my last attempt, but I think I was right the first time. I'll just stick with more CAS.....lol. But it's always good to stretch yourself, right? Oh, the pattern paper is some really old Prima Marketing paper I had in my stash.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a super day :)
