Kazan's Sketch #54: Amour



Happy Tuesday! I just got my air-conditioning repaired, so it truly is a HAPPY Tuesday!


I did manage to make this little card early this morning in the heat (it was too hot to sleep!) for Kazan's Sketch #54 over at 2S4Y. I used some more new SU goodies, Artistic Etchings and Newsprint designer series paper. I *heart* this paper! Doesn't it look just like old book print?! The other patterns are great too! The two little strips are supposed to be the Argyle texture from the Big Shot texture plate, but you can't really see them in the picture, darn!



FYI, to get the ruffled edge that looks like crepe paper around the oval, I cut a couple of strips of 1" card stock, then broke the fibers down by pulling it against the bone folder. After that the strip of cardstock easily divides into two pieces, which I randomly folded, pleated style and taped to the back of oval, working around the oval as I went. Hope that makes sense, let me know if you have questions! I think it might have turned out a little bit neater if the air-conditioning had been working! lol!



I'm heading out to Missouri tomorrow to spend some time with my folks, yay! My dad recently had a heart attack and a couple of surgeries and he's doing well, but I'm hoping to help them out some. Guess I better start packing and attacking the cleaning I put off when the air-condo was broken! The real question...how much and what paper-crafting supplies to pack?! How much do they charge for extra bags and pound overage?! Yikes!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
