Freshly Made Sketches #171

Here's my next card, inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches, sketch #171.

Select die and scrap piece of cardstock

 Tape down "mask" with post-it tape; pick out area to color (will be cut out later)

 Select three colors of distress ink

 Using pouncing motion, use inking tools to apply ink; cut out using 2.5 inch die

 Find complementary color to cut out scalloped circle
 Cut out three strips of coordinating printed cardstock at dimensions above; trim one edge as banner; select sentiment, in this case Hero Arts Clear Stamp "Thanks a Bunch"; cut card to 4.25 x 11; score at 5.5"

 Assemble card
