I enjoyed making this card! I wanted to play around with Black, Sage, Rust/gold, and Ivory and this Sketch Challenge provided the ideal opportunity.
I had already decided on my plain card stock colors and how the layers would be stacked, when I opened a new mat pack (a gift from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Designder Resources) and found this really cool dp. I ran into two small problems: (1) I forgot that it is not an easy task to stamp on linen paper; and (2) I did not have a Sage Flower. I do like the rust, but I still think a sage flower would have taken the design to the next level. I went through my stash of goodies from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design and was fortunate enough to find a wonderful green leaf with rust edges…Perfect. If you have not purchased anything from SCACD, you are in for a treat. With each order, she encloses a little (or not so little, depending on the size of your order) surprise package.
