Wednesday Card Day – You’re So Special

Wednesday Card Day Intro


Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. The sketch this week is pretty straightforward and looks easy, but once you start making a project you realize that it’s not that easy than it seems. Here is this week’s sketch —



You're So Special

I immediately knew after seeing the sketch that i didn’t want to use patterned paper or washi tape to achieve the horizontal lines. So I decided to use watercolors instead. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads (please check the supply list for all the colors I used).

I decided to paint horizontal lines toward the right of the card. After painting all the colors, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Truly Appreciated stamp set using Versamark ink. I covered the sentiment with the Recollections Silver Detail embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
