This is for this weeks Sketches! By Tamara sketch #64 which is below. The whole time I was making this, I kept singing The Manhatten's song of Shining Star. "...Honey, you- are my shining star..." LOL!! I just love music, so a lot of times, I find myself singing a song that may have to do with whatever creation I may be doing!
I used the ol' retired SU! color of Cranberry Crisp for the base and My Mind's Eye for the dp which I picked up while at the winter CHA. I also dusted off my ever-so-needed SU! set of Bronc Buster for the dust and my Wanted set for the sentiment. I threaded some twine around the sentiment and on the side and then colored it in with my Copic marker for a darker brown hopefully giving a "leather" look. I cut the ovals out with my Nestibilities and popped it up along with the dust and star. The star is chipboard that was already red in color, but I used the back and distressed it a bit and highlighted it with my white gel pen. For the final embellishment, I used some hoarded K & CO brads which went with, I believe, a patriotic set it put out a few years ago. (Yes, I said years!!!) I sponged the whole card with Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Antique Linen, Close to Cocoa for a more antique look. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!
