iLCS26 cardcard sketchHello Sweet Friend card is designed for this week’s sketch at i Love Card Sketches.

To color the embossed image on the Whisper White card stock, I used a couple of methods.  First I applied Sahara Sand ink to the inside top of the embossing folder (the side with the indented image and slightly bigger than the bottom).  The Whisper White card stock was placed inside the embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.  This  produced a fade shadow effect.  Next I used a Pear Pizzazz marker to color the leaves and add a few accents with an Early Espresso marker.  Then I used sponge daubers to add Soft Sky and So Saffron ink on parts of the flowers.

The Modern Label Punch will retire from the Stampin’ Up! Catalog after June 2nd.  To create the mat, punch two labels from Early Espresso card stock.  One of the labels is cut in half lengthwise and the other is cut in half crosswise.  Attach the pieces to the back of the sentiment label.

Check out I Love Card Sketches to see other samples for this sketch.  Then play along and post your creation using this sketch.
