a sketch & a card - Stamps & Dies from Papertrey Ink + twine

Hello Dear Friends! Welcome to another edition of "a sketch & a card". Today, I have a card featuring two of my favorite stamps (the rose is from The Sweet Life) and dies from Papertrey Ink plus some yummy twine from The Twinery.
Bonjour chères Scropines! Voici une autre édition de "un croquis & une carte", cette fois j'ai utilisé deux tampons (la rose vient de la collection The Sweet Life) et découpes que j'aime énormèment de Papertrey Ink ainsi qu'un peu de baker's twine de The Twinery.

the sketch / le croquis:

the card / la carte:
The gold splatters were made using a bit of acrylic paint on an old toothbrush. All the inks are from ColorBox. They're so saturated with color that sometimes it's a little tricky to see where you're stamping but I do think their choice of colors and the intensity of each color is quite remarkable. For added dimension, I used foam squares to adhere the rose to the card.

Les petites taches dorées ont été faite avec un peu de peinture acrylique sur une vieille brosse à dents. Toutes les encres de couleurs sont de ColorBox. Ces encres sont très saturées ce qui signifie que parfois il est difficile de voir exactement où l'on tamponne mais leurs choix de couleurs et l'intensité de chaque couleur sont remarquables. Afin d'ajouter un peu de volume à la carte, j'ai collé la rose avec de l'adhésif 3-D.
N.B: Please feel free to paste the sketch onto your blog if you feel like using it. Thank you for linking it up to art scrap & more and letting me know! I'd love to come and leave you a comment! N'hésitez pas à vous servir de ce croquis. Merci de renvoyer à ce blog si vous l'utilisez. Je serais ravie de venir admirer votre projet!
