Lucky Card

Hello everyone :-D  

Today I want to share with you a card I made today. It´s Lucky Card.

For my card layout I used a sketch098 with a twist from {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig. Twist was to use colored pencils.

I used From the Heart Stamps 'Lucky Birdbrain Chik' digital stamp set, which includes lovely image and four bonus sentiments.

I printed the image on a piece of white cardstock paper and distressed whole surface with Tim Holtz´s Distress Ink Old Paper. After paper was dry, I colored the image with woodless colored pencils.

This is the first time I tried to color with colored pencils on distressed paper. It looks vintage, don´t you think? 

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 143 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8").

List of supplies:
  • From the Heart Stamps 'Lucky Birdbrain Chick'
  • Graphic 45 paper collection 'French Country', 8 x 8 (French Country, Promenade, Sunflower)
  • Graphic 45 paper French Country', 6 x 6 (Patterns and Solids)
