Feel Better Soon

I'm excited to be playing in the new to me CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. This sketch is by the fabulous Karolyn Loncon! Karolyn was my secret sister once in a Splitcoast swap and boy does she know how to send a package! And make cute sketches. ;)

The picture looks crooked, but it's my ridiculous photo setup not the card. I decided to try stamping on cork. I used Memento ink on it and I think it worked pretty well. I'd love recommendations, though! A friend just sent me the pretty red twine and I'm trying not to hoard. ;) It's a complete cheater bow. The twine was too stiff for me to tie a bow tight enough and a knot just wasn't enough so I tucked some loops into the knot and it seems to work just fine. Several friends are dealing with aches and pains and medical situations so a feel better card seemed just the thing.

Thanks for looking!

  4. Hahaha! I totally forgot that I was your secret sister!! Those were such fun times, weren't they?!! I miss all my VSN girlies . . . . This is a super cute take on the sketch, chica - I love that you stamped on cork - and did a great job at that! The twine is a great organic touch, too - amazing texture!! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS(E) This Sketch - we're so glad you did!! XOXO

  5. Great stamping on cork, Paula! I've heard rave reviews about LUXE inks which have good results on canvas, fabric, and probably cork. Thanks for joining CAS(E) this Sketch!
