Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #459

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.
