But as the old saying goes, “Appearances can be deceiving” This hold true to this sketch. What kept throwing me was the two rectangles on the right side.
Normally I would try it three times and if it doesn’t work, I move on. However, for some unknown reason, I refused to let this sketch beat me. So on the fifth attempt and at two o’clock in the morning, this idea came to me.
What about doing a faux layer on the card. And that is what I ended up doing. I ripped a sheet of regular paper in half and taped it down on top of the white card stock. Then I rubbed the sides, carefully without tearing the paper or having it curl up on me, with Tim Holtz’s Mowed Lawn distressed ink.
I then stamped leaves on the color bar. I inked the edges of the white cardstock, green cardstock and white card using the same ink. The sentiment is from “Thinking of You” from Art Gone Wild. I was very pleased with the results.
I also tried it using my Creative Memories, Wavy Cutter which again I was pleased with the results.
