I started by printing out the digi stamp and sentiment onto Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. I watercolored the teapot with Arteza Real Brush Pens (ginger, cadmium orange, olive green, wine red, rouge pink, bumble bee yellow and sunset yellow) and fussy cut out. I used a craft knife to cut out the inside of the handle. Next, I stamped the library card from Your Story on creamy cardstock with Antique Linen Distress ink and cut out. I stamped the script from Texture Tiles 1 in Sage Shadow ink onto the library card (unfortunately, it doesn't show up well in the photo) and lightly roughed up the edges with a distress tool.
I gently sponged the edges of the kraft base, words and library card with Antique Linen. I dry embossed a piece of Handsome Hunter cardstock with old cuttlebug folder. I attached the embossed piece to the cardbase and wrapped some twine around the front (adhering under the teapot). I assemble the rest of the card as seen popping the teapot and sentiment up with foam tape.
I had every intention of following the sketch exactly. After I dry embossed the cardstock, I realized it wasn't wide enough to work right so I decided to flip the sketch. This is in no way a clean and simple card, but I enjoyed working with the sketch. I like how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
