Unscripted Sketches #205 - hey girlfriend

Saturday April 6, 2013
 
Hello and welcome to another great sketch from Unscripted Sketches #205
I am loving this sketch and knew instantly what I wanted to do with it. I hope you have fun, you can turn it, make a scrapbook page, framed design. Just try to follow the sketch as best as you can. I love seeing your work.
 I have been wanting to try this faux embossing technique I saw and I am sorry I don't remember who's blog I saw this one But it's taking the same color card stock as the main part of the card and die cutting a repeating shape. Here I used a zig-zag die and then just off set them. Doesn't it look embossed. It sure gives the card a nice texture with out over powering it. I love it and will use this technique again.
I did not want too much going on and keep the image C&S so I stamped the darling dress on script and colored it in. I like how the print shows through the dress, gives it a nice texture too. This was a fun card to make. Not that others aren't but you know what I mean.  I thought this would make a nice friendship/birthday/congratulations card. Guess it all depends what you write inside.
