Today I've combined two challenges: one color challenge from the Play Date Cafe and one sketch challenge from Card Patterns. The colors were barn red, slate blue, and grey- which inspired me to make a 4th of July card!!
I tried some new techniques with this card. For example, I sewed on my machine along the silver stripe- which turned out to be way harder than I thought it would be! I think that I might have had my bobbin in wrong because once I took it out and put it back through, it worked!!! Another new (for me) technique I used was to bend my acrylic stamp to fit the rounded corners and the red circle. My faux stitching stamp is straight, but I arranged (and rearranged and rearranged) it on my acrylic block to fit the curves. Finally, I made my own "sticker" sentiment out of scratch paper and stamps.
