Small Things - Curtain Retro Sketch!


Small Things - Curtain Retro Sketch!

This was a bear of a card.
I managed to do the top layer of the heart lattice fine 
and transfer and adhere it to the folder
cardstock without dropping out any pieces.
Next, piecing a puzzle of bits of paper how I wanted,
well it was more challenging than I thought.
Since I don't have a stitched square mat from Lil' Inkers, 
I only have the stitched rectangles so I have one side 
"unstitched."
My main frustration was lighting.
This card picked up yellows and somehow just would not photograph very well.
So today, as the light was fading I remembered that I might just be 
able to get an ok shot outside.
So here is my best attempt.


Supplies:
Memory Box Lattice Heart Die
Lil Inkers Stiched Rectangles
Stampin Up! Label Punch
Paper Crate DP Papers [Maggie Holmes]
SavvyStamps Sentiment
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Studio Calico Wooden Heart
Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Ranger Tropical Tangerine Stickles




I was inspired by Wendy Robinson's Sunshine Scrap Card in
Paper Crafts Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters Volume 2




Happy Crafting!

Small quilt, beautiful papers, eye-catching embossing, the perfectly placed special touch heart...sighhhh. I. love. this. Photographing your card outside reinforces how stunning it is; I'm reminded of pretty quilts hanging from my grandma's clothesline, drying in the breeze. Happy sighhh...Yes, stunning...Hugs~c
