Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 21
This is my first time participating in a Sweet Sunday Challenge. I really like this sketch and will use it again very soon.
I still want to make a few more July 4th cards to send out and I thought I would use this sketch to get another one under my belt.
The details are hard to see in the picture. On the big chipboard heart, I used some distress crackle paint and it looks great. However, after I got everything on the card, I decided to use some crackle accents on the stars in the blocks.... wish I hadn't. It doesn't look terrible, you just really have to look hard to see the crackle effect. They just look shiny!
I also added the little stars in the polka dots after the fact. I started to do the whole card over from scratch, but then I thought, not every card is perfect so why mess up a perfectly good card?!?! All you can do is learn from your mistakes and move on!
