MTME Pretty Patterns Sketch #31

Today I have a fun card to share with you! I participated in the My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns Sketch again this week.  I downloaded some more free digi papers from My Time Made Easy and paired it up with a cute Hero Arts stamp that I haven't inked up in a while.

This card is perfect for my husband.  He is a master chef.  I always tease him that he is my very own Bobby Flay.  So, I made this with him in mind.

I used Kraft for the base and layered the MTME paper along with some Basic Grey stocks.  I did some wild sewing on the edge - I just decided to go back and forth a few times, not really trying to keep anything straight and I like the messy look it created.  I usually try to make perfectly straight lines when I sew, so this was kinda cool to just do whatever.

I stamped the image onto Kraft and colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.  Then I used a Copic marker to trace around the image and make it pop a little bit.  I've been doing this quite a bit recently - I just really like the way some of the colors look on the Kraft.

For the background, I cut out 9 squares, inked the edges and placed them on some stock.  I added some buttons with twine to the corner and the card was done!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to check out the MTME Sketch Challenge this week!
