Miss You So Much & FMS431

I'm sharing a card I made for the current Freshly Made Sketches #431. I am finally learning how to use digi stamps with the release of  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps new digital set, In This Together. I love the images and the sentiments in this set!

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!
