Usually I have some idea of how I want things to work out, but with this sketch I was totally stumped. In the end, I picked up my colour coach for some inspiration. The combo of Pure Poppy, Not Quite Navy and Sahara Sand had caught my eye before, however it's a bit masculine and I thought this sketch was a bit feminine. So that was the challenge I set myself, to see if I could make a masculine card from a feminine sketch as I had no other ideas!
Here's what I made:
I used my Top Note die to cut the wavy line, I used the Square Lattice embossing folder (from the Summer Mini) on the Not Quite Navy layer and I clear embossed the sentiment and the dots. A couple of slivers of Sahara Sand cardstock and I was done. The Not Quite Navy layer is popped up on dimensionals to give it a bit of lift.
So what do you think?? Does it work???? I hope so.
