SOUS Card Sketch: Feb 6-19th

Wow what a busy week for me! If you are looking for the Stuck on U Sketches Blog Hop click HERE and if you are looking for Sara's Birthday Blog Hop click HERE.
 
Now for today, we have the first February card sketch from SOUS. Check out this cute little sketch from Leah Schaeffer.
 
 
Since the card sketch was so long and skinny I went out of my box and made a card to fit in a Legal sized envelope (4 1/8 x 9 1/2).  
 
 
I further went out out of my comfort zone with the style of this card. It is a lot more romantic and vintage looking than I typically do but I had this beautiful collection from Basic Grey called Serenade and it worked perfectly!
 
 
I used Distress ink around the edges of the card to add to the soft vintage feel. I created the splotches of ink by rubbing some of the distress ink on my craft mat. I then got a paint brush dripping with water and got the ink wet. I filled the brush with the watered down ink and flicked it onto the paper to get the spots.

 
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge for your chance at being featured on the SOUS blog as one of our Top 3! Link up your card here.
 
Have a great day!
I love to read your kind comments
