Twisted Sketches Card #71

To see this week's card sketch head on over to the Twisted Sketches blog.  And if you play along, you can now link your creation to the Twisted Sketches blog!

This week's twisted is "edge".  The initial plan was to use autumn colors and make it a masculine card.   My first attempt didn't quite emerge as I saw it in my head.  As I sat contemplating whether I should go ahead and use the card or not, I realized I totally overlooked the twist.

I took the opportunity to improve upon my first card and came up with this card!



The first card had a solid background with alcohol ink strips and just didn't look right.  Switching the "patterned" and solid papers around I was much happier with the results!  The twist this week is "edge" so I tore the edges of the background and each strip and distressed the other 3 edges of the strips.

I used Stardust "Fairway" cover stock for the card and the strips, the background paper is glossy card stock with alcohol inks in terra cotta, rust, pesto, butterscotch, copper mixative and blending solution.  The sentiment stamp is from Great Impressions. The flowers and brad are from my stash.  I used some Viva Las Vegas tape and  glue dots.

Don't forget to add your card with Mr. Linky on the Twisted Sketches blog!  I am looking forward to seeing it!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
