I'm not sure I love the direction I took with this. I had the image of a tablecloth in my head - so I was thinking of a lacy and elegant look. In retrospect, I wish I would have gone for quirky. I don't dislike this card, but I think it would have made more sense with regular lines vs. the angled panel.
And the other very exciting thing on this card are the black speckles. Most of you are now rolling your ideas but I stress over speckles. I recently watched this video by Jennifer McGuire which is her "other crafty favorites" video from 2019 and lo and behold she demonstrates a variety of products to add speckles. This is the Spellbinders Silk and is oh-so-easy to use! I got the three colors that she recommended but I might be going back for more. I also got the Brutus Monroe White Aqua Pigment that she recommended for white speckles but haven't used it yet. I love anything that improves and de-stresses my crafting life!!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
