Missing You

I have a major project working in my spare bedroom, and it involves paint. Craft paint. LOTS of craft paint. I am not in love with the results of said project, so to drown my sorrows, I've been taking lots of breaks and making cards. I think I need to feel like I can actually make something that doesn't totally suk.

For this card, I combined two challenges. A color challenge from Colour Me!:

and a sketch from Unscripted Sketches:

I turned the sketch on its ear, and this is what came out:

For the colors I went with my pack of Flair paper from MME. The sketch elements should be pretty clear, but I didn't use any twine -- didn't think it looked right, so I stamped some hearts instead.

I really like this one. :)

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to glare at some paint.

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: misc black brads, SU basic Black card stock, and the following:


  1. Cute polka dots! Thanks for sharing this week at Colour Me...!

  2. This is so super sweet! I love those little hearts you've added and the great polka dot background! Thanks for joining us this week at Colour Me...! :)

  3. Very cute. I like the little hearts floating up. I can't wait to see what you're doing with all of that paint. You are gonna show us, right?

  4. Your card is just great. I love the way the hearts seem to come from the 'missing you' sentiment! Take heart on your painting project! We've had a few bloopers over the years, and they usually still turn out just fine... except for the times they didn't! lol sorry! Thanks for playing along at Colour Me...! this week!

  5. Gorgeous combining of the color and the sketch challenges!

    I really, really like this, the cute sentiment and the whimsical hearts floating up, divine!
