I haven't played in a sketch challenge for a long time; I look at them for inspiration but haven't committed to one for I don't know how long!
Today I needed some creative time, hard as it was to pull out of myself, to distract myself a bit from the bypass surgery recovery and secondary pneumonia (CAP) infection that currently has my dad hospitalized.
So I perused the Sketch bookmarks I have on my iPad and found this site
and this week's sketch: FMS86
I've had in my mind to use Reverse Confetti's words from I Like You in speech bubbles for a while and it came together in this card this morning.
I stamped the larger heart from the set in Memento Rose Bud, Cantaloupe and Pear Tart onto shimmer white cardstock, using first and second generation stamping to get different color shades of the heart. After stamping, I die cut the shapes and then stamped on the words in Versafine Onyx Black.
Instead of a sentiment placed where the sketch shows, I did a trio of smaller hearts from the set stamped in white pigment ink.
It was fun to play in a challenge again, I think I just might do so more often!
