You know how one blog takes you to another which takes you to another which takes you to another? Well, in my blog journeying I ended up on a new blog to me: Authentique Paper. I just love the Authentique paper line...it's another favorite of mine. I recently purchased some small 6x6 pads at Archiver's during a sale (of course!) and was eying the Genuine one to use.
I saw a sketch challenge on the Authentique blog that I decided to enter. Here is the sketch:
And here is my very liberal interpretation of it:
I turned it on it's side and after trying some different shapes for those mats I decided to leave them off. I used some Ranger Distress Ink (Faded Jeans) and also cut a rickrack strip with a Papertrey Ink die that is adhered to the chevron. The lacy circle was cut with a Spellbinder and I used some Papertrey Ink twine to tie a generous bow. The sentiment was done with a Close to My Heart stamp with Versamark embossed with some Adirondack powder.
This is quite a different card for me but I had fun doing it and enjoyed the result!
I entered this in the Authentique Sketch Challenge HERE.
Happy Monday and Happy Crafting!
