Laura's Sketch #29: Special Friend Blend

A new sketch is up over at 2sketches4you, this weeks sponsor is from Score-it.  I wanted to do something a little different with my American Crafts designer paper, so I took out my Mini Score-it and made score lines every 1/4 inch, vertically and horizontally on my paper, this made a really cool grid pattern.  On my ivory card stock, I also used my mini Score-it to score lines above and below my scalloped border.  Little details like scoring make a card look polished.  The image is from Unity Stamp Co & the sentiment is from Papertrey ink.

"special friend blend"


My image was colored in using Copic markers, if you head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter there is a tutorial up on coloring with these markers.
