but enough intro, let's get to the sketch!
isn't it excellent?! well no duh, i mean it's another heidi van laar design, and she only does FABULOUS!!! i am fairly happy with my card, too, as a matter of fact:
(all materials are from studio calico's "director's cut" add-on kit; sadly it has sold out so i don't have a link or photo to show you; it's amongst the sketchfest prizes, though, so get over to 'varks and post your own card for a shot at one!)
i'm rather proud of having used some bits of *packaging* on this one: the panel with the compass and the word "travel" come from the making memories tiny words stickers; the word "love" and the row of tiny hearts come from the studio calico packing card; and the scalloppy orange border is the negative bit from cutting out a cute shape from a pack of decorative pins!
for the heart shape i used a piece of fancy pants chipboard as a template on a piece of scrap cardstock, and filled in the shape using the tiny "great escape" wordfetti stickers. (this is very similar to how i used the decorative tape to make yesterday's flourishes; see a mini-tutorial here.) the rest is just regular supplies from the kit, it had a very nice selection of travel-themed items, but you will see from the rest of my cards (& the other gorgeous dt examples!) that they're adaptable to all sorts of other themes!
i have to say that one of the main things i learned from working with this fun selection of products is i really, REALLY like decorative masking tape (♥♥♥!) and i can completely understand how people get utterly addicted to collecting it!!! it's just lucky i don't have any OCD tendencies, then, eh??! ;)
more tomorrow, but in the meantime:
♥ HAPPY MONDAY, DARLINGS!!! ♥
