This weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch #564 is nice. I like sketches that are clear on where the focal point is, and still be able to interpret a little bit. Here’s this weeks sketch by Melissa.
This really could be a one layer card, but I mounted it onto a blue panel, then onto a side folded craft cardstock base just for the extra!.
I used a few different stamps sets from Photo Play, Hero Arts, and Stampendous to create my focal point . I got most of these stamp sets as part of a fundraiser from the crafting community to help with Hurricane Harvey Relief. They are just as relevant today with COVID-19 and the unemployment situation in our country as they were during that time.
I had started out this card just to meet the requirements of the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge, and ended up creating this specifically for some friends. He is a Texas Ranger, and she is a healthcare administrator!
Now, I feel connected to the card, and really wanted to make it more personal! That is why my boot is pink!
After I embossed the images and sentiment using Altenew Black Obsidian Ink, and clear embossing powder, onto watercolor paper, I used the Starry Night color from the 24 Pan Artists Watercolor Set to create the splatter background. I used the Encore Silver Pigment Ink and clear embossing powder for my star. I then used the Altenew Metallic 14, and 24 Pan Artists Watercolor Sets to paint in the images.
This was such a fun card to make with some special meaning behind it, and came together quickly thanks to a great sketch!
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
