Easy Watercoloring
"Sugared" Citrus Card

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a card for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.  

Sketch Challenge 333 #mftstamps


I find color inspiration in all kinds of interesting places.  For this card, I got the color scheme from a cartoon one of my kids was watching where the mom had these brightly colored rollers in her hair.  Very strange, I know, but I always have a notepad near by to jot down color schemes or design ideas when I see them.  You never know.....:)


I started off with a piece of white cardstock I cut down to fit the front of a notecard with just a little frame all around it. I heat embossed MFT's Floral Fantasy background stamp in white on the front and then masked off diagonal lines with Post-It Tape.  I ink blended my color choices to make the stripes from the sketch.  


I liked the way the stripes looked, but I felt like I needed more interest.


I decided to cut apart the stripes and rearrange them on the front of a white card base raising the 2 middle stripes up on 2 layers of foam tape.



I stamped a sentiment from Boss Babe, down the middle at an angle and added a couple of hearts for interest.  


Thanks so much for joining me today!
