Topic: Sketch Challenge
Although this is an older sketch http://mojomonday.blogspot.nl/2012/04/mojo-monday-236.html it was issued as a challenge on one of the groups I am on. So I gave it a run - making it into another Love/Valentine card for OWH. Here is the original sketch for your reference:
For my card I used a striped paper as a base and used three border embossing folders as the three horizontal stripes. I added tiny borders to the top and bottom of this white panel and bordered all this in red. I created a white scalloped circle and cut a black and white floral paper circle for the center of it. Diecut red words were glued in the center and I used a fine-line red pen to create dashed lines around it. I popped up this element on foam tape. I had some white seam binding and I dyed it with red pepper alcohol ink. While it was still damp I scrunched it and then dryed it with the heat gun. This was tied around the main panel and knotted.
There was still sommething missing so I added a black and white stripe around all the edges as a finish.
