Smile Sketch

A card for Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's is by Jen Timko, and I found it to be tricky at first! Then I had a little watercolor adventure party, and my card started to come together...

Here's the sketch...



I wanted to use this cute little camera image from Studio G to make a birthday card.  


The heart was paper-pieced with coral paper, and is coated with Glossy Accents.  I used PTI's Watercolor Wonder set and WPlus9's Splat sets.  Inked the images with Distress Inks in Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, and Squeezed Lemonade, then spritzed them with water before stamping on the paper.  Added some ink straight to my acrylic blocks, too, then spritzed more water and shook above my whole card for some added droplets!



Added a sentiment with PTI's Headline Alphabet dies, cutting the letters from coaster board, and inking them up, too.  Added starbursts (flash bulbs :)) and a sentiment from PTI's Good Times set, and some painted wooden stars and iridescent sequins.  My daughters will like this more modern card to take to a future birthday party!
