Freshly Made Sneak Peek...

Hi All! Are you enjoying your sneak peeks? I hope so!
Here's another peek that was inspired by the challenge over on Freshly Made Sketches. I enjoy clean and simple sketches like this one:

Here's my take on the sketch:

The A2 card base is White Daisy cardstock, layered with a 5 1/4 x 4-inch piece of Lagoon cardstock. The paper collection is called For Always, and will be available in the new spring idea book that is being released on February 1st. This black and white collection is great for everything from Valentines to Weddings, to everyday life. I used Ruby Exclusive Ink for the sentiment, which is from the For Always Workshop On The Go, and to ink around the edges of the paper. I also sanded down the patterned paper to make the sentiment more legible. The hearts were made with a punch, but either of the Cricut cartridges--Art Philosophy or Artiste--could cut them for you in no time. I added white dots to the black and whisper doily heart with a gel pin. A little Color-Ready Seam Binding (to which I never seem to add color!) adds just the right texture. 

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Hope you enjoyed the Freshly-inspired sneak peek. Have a peaceful Sunday!
