Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #42

This weeks challenge from AHSC allowed me to play with the new Skylark paper packet!  So beautiful! So spring!  We had snow yesterday followed by heavy fog and rain which has turned everything into a white soggy mess.  West Coast snow is rarely fluffy it is a slushy, soggy mess.  So I am more than happy to play in my craft room today with papers that are make me think of anything but the slushy, soggy mess I have to wade thru shortly to pick my child up from school.

I love it when cards come together quickly and look (in my humble opinion) great!  I fully believe this is because Michelle and Darla of Atlantic Hearts provided us with such great sketches that have lots of room for individual interpretation. This weeks sketch was no exception.

Products I used for this card are the new Skylark Paper, Lagoon and Kraft Cardstock, Sweet Leaf Ink, and the Hello Tweety Stamp Set (which I just realized is now retired).  I also used a piece of Sweet Leaf Ribbon and an antique copper brad from my stash. 

Techniques I used on this card are: I sponged inked the white daisy cardstock with Sweet Leaf and to give texture to the Lagoon Cardstock I took my sanding block and using the roughest grit I dragged it across one way and then the other to create the distressed cross-hatch pattern.
