Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to the weekend.
I haven't felt or slept well this week, but finishing this card sure has brightened my spirits. I began it wondering how and if the colors and patterns would come together, but I am so pleased by the end result.
Splitcoaststampers Sketch SC227 was my map for layout and design, but not strictly. First, I flipped the sketch vertically so the drink would not be competing with the sentiment. Then, I decided not to use an oval and line the sentiment up in the corner of sketch elements 2 and 4.
6x6" aqua card base and mats is Color Mates. The yellow mat is KI Memories card. The pink strip is white Springhill Digital colored with a Promarker. The blue scalloped edging was border-punched on a stash scrap. The 3 designer paper patterns are from Honey Bee's 6x6 Tie Dye collection. The MFT sentiment is stamped with Versamark and heat-embossed with white powder. The border sentiment die (placed sideways) is cut from the designer paper, smooshed with Versamark and heat-embossed with clear powder. The focal image (isn't she gorgeous?) is My Besties Besties For All Seasons Doll 10 black and white digi stamp. She is colored with Promarkers and Sakura StarDust glitter gel pens. I added 3 flat sequins (pineapple and flamingos) at the end on a whim because she looks to me like she's standing like a flamingo, lol.
The back has a yellow card mat like the front and a stamped and punched siggie inked with Angel Pink Memento ink.
Two close-ups to show the glittery gel-penning and the heat-embossed sentiment shine.
And final view.
But since it's Thursday, that's not all! Time to share some food for Rain's Thursday Art and Dinner Date.
I'm sharing a dinner plate from last night: Korean Sweet n Spicy Beef and rice with Spring Rolls and Sweet Chili Sauce.
And for dessert: Mandarin Orange Fluff! We added walnuts and toasted coconut to the recipe.
Definitely a delicious dinner!
Thanks for the visit and stay well. XXO
