It all looks reasonable until I tried to reconcile the sketch with the Library Ledger stamp set. The only good thing about being in the dentist chair this week was time to mull over how I could pull this off.
I finally came up with the idea of using the two grid stamps in the set (instead of the library card) and creating a color block with Copic markers for the two panels in the sketch.
I can honestly say I would never have made this card without the Roll of the Die challenge, but the more I worked on it, the more it came together and I am pretty happy with the final result.
The PTI Mega Mixed Messages stamp set is so incredibly versatile, I could have used a number of different sentiments, but the "make a wish" seemed made to go with the stars on the sketch. I diecut two stars the same size and offset them, only adhering the center so they have a bit of movement (the top star is also mounted with foam adhesive for a little height).
I did try a few rhinestones on the sentiment star, but ended up removing them - there was enough bling flashing around on this card!
The grid blocks are colored with 3 Copics (RV21, RV25 & RV29) - I'm glad I left a few of the smaller grid openings white, but it looked unfinished when I tried to do the same with the larger grid panel.
The stars are from Teresa Collins - a happy find in my stash - and the swirls are a cut up Zva Creative Crystal long flourish.
I hope to get some time to roll the die again later this week.
Thanks for stopping,
