for my cards (bc YES, i made two, lol!) i used the sketch half of the current fusion card challenge, which looks a bit like this:
the reason i made two cards is because i'm slightly obsessed with the new tim holtz metallic kraft core cardstock i got at paper anthology, and i had more than one idea i wanted to try out. my first card uses the gold colored cardstock, embossed with a doily-patterned folder, dabbed with gesso to make the doilies stand out more. my second card uses a strip of the silver cardstock, embossed with a diamond pane folder, then sanded to expose the kraft, and dabbed with black ink to get a grungier look:
as a matter of fact, i still have a few more ideas of what to do with this fun cardstock... because as soon as you say, "metallic" the words, "alcohol inks" kind of naturally spring to mind, don't they? i will definitely show the results when i've had a bit of a play with that idea!
*back in the day, 2 sketches 4 you was my favorite sketch challenge site, and i secretly still miss it, lol! ♥
