RetroSketches #141

tracey_RS141-detail


Hope that your Saturday is going well so far. Time for a new sketch at RetroSketches!
I am very excited to finally be able to tell you that I am joining the team.
I will be a part-timer for a while


This week Arielle made a sketch from one of my cards found HERE, actually it probably still is one of my favourite cards.



For my remake card I used a new to me embossing tip (thank you Michele Ferguson). I inked all the images first in VersaMark, then in pigment ink and then I clear embossed the entire panel at once.  I used Delicata Golden Glitz, Delicata Silver Shimmer and VersaFine Onyx Black pigment inks. It looks amazing IRL but it is a bit camera shy, you can see it a bit better in my detail shot below. I drew the strings in after with a fine tip marker and added a couple sequins.

I am submitting this to Virginia's Lu's Challenge #9 for All Things Metallic.



...and the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking November Gallery Challenge

I am looking forward to seeing what you do with the sketch this week!
