WSC 82 - Vertical Greetings II

It's Wednesday Stamp Club time! I took this week's sketch in a more minimal direction by not matting my layers, while still adding lots of interest by distressing, sponging, ripping and piercing.

I've used Vertical Greetings II for my main panel, omitting the tab as I had a sentiment as my focal point.

If you look closely, you'll see my ink pad was a little "juicy" and I ended up with some extra ink dots where I didn't want them. Instead of starting over - I just added sprays of ink with an airbrush tool to camoflague and hide the "mistake". If you're going for a distressed look anyway, this is a great way to save a panel!

I used a button in place of the flower to keep my card more on the masculine side so I could give it to hubby :-)

I thought this sentiment from Vertical Greetings worked so well with the one on the front.

  1. Sarah your colors are fantastic! The paper piercing is too -- I swear I thought I was seeing a graham cracker for a minute - hmmm, suddenly craving a smore! But then you took it in a completely different direction and I love it!

  2. Awesome card. Great paper choices and love that sentiment and the way you finished the inside also.
