We're getting started on the New Release Preparations for My Favorite Things, but hold on, its Wednesday, so it is time to play along with the WSC! This sketch is a little tricky at first glance, but simply take a rectangle, and cut in half for those overlapping panels. I dug through my images to see what *needed* to get inky, and this Pure Innocence: Honey Bee is always a favorite for me. And I especially love to use her for Valentines Day.
I paired her with the October Afternoon: Sidewalks patterned paper. Because I was loving the fresh colors on this paper, I didn't accent as I usually do, with kraft paper, but today I've done my layers with ivory paper. I actually used Stickles on the bee wings. If you know me, you know I call stickles my crafting nemesis. I can't tell you how many images I've botched with them, so I made very sure I was 100% done with my image before glittering those wings. And then I walked away. As in until the next day. No lie.
The flower embellishment in the sketch was replaced on my card with a Die-namics Hearts a Plenty cut from cork, and then I added a small sentiment flag...
So, just pretend you don't see those circular elements in the corners here... I've *loosely* interpreted those with a touch of zig-zag stitching in each corner.... I was loving the feel of these patterned papers together, and just couldn't pile it on today. (and... off the record, I'll mention, I typically omit these types of elements from sketches....I can never find enough matching buttons or other small embellishments. I'm a paper hoarder, not an embellie hoarder....)
