AWH May Creative Showcase: Sketch


Welcome to the Monthly Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

During May, SU Demonstrators are able to preorder select products from the upcoming Annual catalogue. It's a sweet month, as we have products retiring, some carrying over, and some brand new things to play with. I have used some products from each of those categories on my card.

Let's talk DSP! The two papers I have used are from the new In Good Taste DSP pack. This is a must have! Remember the Wood Textures DSP we had a couple of years ago? This pack has a lot of similar papers, but in 12x12! Fabulous! There are also patterns of marble tiles and various textiles. The papers really are amazing. I have chosen a light wood pattern, as this makes me think of the beach, which fits my focal image. The banner was punched from one of the fabric texture sheets. You will just want to run your fingers over it when you see it in the flesh!

Carrying over from the Jan-June Mini is the gorgeous Beautiful Moments stamp set. I'm probably a little biased, as I fell in love with the set when I presented it in Sydney last November. I stamped it on Watercolour Paper in Saddle Brown Stazon, which is also carrying over.  I coloured the image with my Aqua Painters, which are retiring, but being replaced by an even better set of brushes. I love a bit of watercolouring, so I'm excited to get my hands on those! The colours I used on the image are Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron.

I couldn't resist adding a little more of the fabric DSP to the inside. I also used another length of the Night Of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine on the inside. Sadly, it's another product that is retiring. It's a lovely, thick twine, great for bows.

I haven't stamped a sentiment on the inside, as I'm not sure what I'll use the card for yet. The 'Thinking Of You' on the front leaves it pretty wide open for a range of occasions.

Next up is the fabulous Catherine Proctor.
