A Pinch of Love

Global Design Project # 330 | Sketch

Initially I couldn’t think of anything that I wanted to do regarding this sketch and then when I did figure it out I couldn’t find the stamp set. I had a bad night, not able to sleep last night, and in the end I got up and searched my craft room until I found the stamp set. It is from Newton’s Nook, Tide of love and I thought it would be cute. I had inked up a background during the week which I hated, but after using a Spellbinders distressed edge die and then wetting the edges so I could form them a bit I liked it better and I knew I was going to add StampinUP DSP over the top so only the edges are really showing. I love this particular DSP and it kind of reminded me of ocean waves. Anyway I stamped the 3 images and coloured them with various Sakura pens. They are so small I wasn’t too worried about shading. Then using the matching dies I cut them out and added some foam tape to the backs of each. Using the sentiments from the same stamp set I did the strips and scored one end of each. I angled the edge so they would fit together and placed them as shown adding the images around them. I added a few water droplets as well but decided against further embellishment. I’m quite happy with this card but am now determined to clean up my craft room and sort things out before I make another. When I can’t find something it means it is past time to put things away.

  1. Johanna, this card is absolutely adorable! I love those fun sentiments and cute creatures. The way you did the 2 background pieces is perfect. I’m sorry you had a bad night, but I’m glad you found what you were looking for and got to create.

  2. Thanks. I am learning that if I can’t sleep, to get up and do something to force my mind to slow down. This card is going to my BFF’s hubby as his birthday is coming up soon.
