Retro Sketches #116

May 26, 2014

Today I'd like to share two cards I made based on the Retro Sketches #116.

The first card is a masculine card. The card stocks I used are Steel Grey, Brick Red (MFT), and Soft Stone (PTI). I created a circle window using a Stitched Circle die (Lil' Inker Designs) and a Circle die (Spellbinders). I stamped a sentiment from For the Record set (SSS) in Versa Mark ink and white embossed. The star trails were cut out using Die-namics Sun, Moon, & Stars (MFT).

Next one is a shaped card and I used a color palette from this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges.

The card base was cut out from Kraft card stock using a Big Scalloped Square die (Spellbinders), then I stamped Wood Plank Background (MFT) onto it in Natural (MFT). For the circle panel I used a couple Circle dies (Spellbinders) and Fishnet Cover-Up Die-namics (MFT). I cut out the "hi" three times from Hawaiian Shores card stock (PTI) using Happy Hellos Die-namics (MFT), and layered them. I added a small heart to the "i". The flower was made with Summer Sunrise card stock (PTI) and  Gerbera Daisy Die-namics (MFT).

It's always so fun to create very different cards based on the same sketch!:)

Thank you for stopping by.
