Get creative and be sure to share your projects here with us! We can't wait to see what you create! Today, Lisa Spangler shares her take on the Documenter sketch.
Hi hi! Hope you're having a great weekend with time to get crafty! I have to tell ya, as soon as I saw Jamie's Documenter spread in my inbox I instantly thought of making a card with a 2-part message so I just HAD to use that sketch. I'd have never thought of doing this layout on my own.
I started out by stamping the flowers from the Encouragement Stamp + Die set by Jasmine Jones with Color Theory Coral Bay pigment ink and then heat embossing it with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper.
Then I rubbed some Color Glass Slipper Dye ink on the lid of the pad and used a water brush to pick up the color and watercolor the flowers. I love how this lets the colors match perfectly -- plus this way you get more from your supplies! To wrap it up I made a little nest out of thread and layered the "Always" message over top. This thread was my Grandma's so is really near and dear to me. I thought it went with the paper so well.
Then for the lower part of the card, I stamped the "here for you" with black ink, and layered it to the patterned paper from the Arendal pad and then added the stitching. I've been trying not to hoard paper this year -- so far, so good! LOL!
To finish off the card, I attached the pieces with foam tape and then added some enamel dots -- and that was that. Can't wait to see what you all do with the sketches and hope you have a great week! -- Lisa xo
