Happy Monday! It's time for a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
Here's my card
When I saw the sketch, I knew that I wanted to use some bright colors. The weather has been pretty dreary here and I wanted to spice things up a bit. I started with a panel of white cardstock that measured 3 3/8" x 8 3/8" which is 1/8" shorter on each dimension than a regular slimline card. I knew that I wanted to mat with black cardstock that measured 3.5" x 8.5". I made three 2 1/4" square mats from post-it notes using a My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX die. I positioned the middle mat and inked up the square using fossilized amber and mowed lawn distress inks, applied with an oval brush. I removed that mat and positioned the top mat and applied carved pumpkin and fired brick distress ink. Lastly, I removed that mat and positioned the final mat and applied salty ocean and wilted violet distress ink. I removed the mask. I then stamped the floral image using Gina K Designs Friendly Silhouettes and Versafine Onyx Black ink in the top and bottom square. In the middle square, I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Simon Says STAMP's Furry Cat & Box 3x4 stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. To complete the card, I adhered the panel to the black cardstock, which I then adhered to a white card base.
We'd love to see how you are inspired by this week's sketch.
Thanks for stopping by

Do you like working with stencils? I do for a couple of reasons. They are available at an affordable price (unless of course, you're purchasing layering stencils), are relatively easy to work with, they are easy to store (take up very little space) and sometimes makes it look like you have exceptional crafty/artsy skills. If you have stencils, we'd love for you to use one (or multiples) and join us at Happy Little Stampers ~ Stencil Challenge.

It's not too early to get started on next year's Christmas cards or are you still working on Christmas 2021 cards. No judgement here! Been there; done that. Honestly, I have so many Christmas themed crafting supplies, I likely can keep crafting Christmas cards and not repeat the stamp set or die. Anyway, enough chatting! Here's my card
