2S4Y :: I'll Leave the Light On


Happy MLK Day, Bleeps! It's such a great day to be off from work! We got the chance to spend the weekend with friends, some old, some new! The photograph session went well and I mostly was the 'entertainer' when the middle of the day arrived! I did wear a few hats, but the entertainer fit the best!

Today, I am sharing a card inspired by this week's 2S4Y sketch. This week's sponsor is Starving Artistamps. I am using a house stamp from this collection. Although I am not much of a colorer, I actually enjoyed coloring this image. However, I do wish I had a few more Copics in my collection! Sometimes, you have to work with what you have though and that is what I did here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and go take a peek at the sketch here.!

Instructions
  1. Trim brown cardstock to create a 5.5" square card base.
  2. Stamp house on white cardstock and color with Copics.
  3. Add inking to white cardstock.
  4. Matte white cardstock on polka dot patterned paper.
  5. Add lace trim to bottom
  6. Add ribbon strip and create a loop.
  7. Adhere matted focal point to card front.
  8. Add buttons (double them up and add twine).
  9. Stamp sentiment and adhere to focal image center.
