Trying my hand at typography...

Hi! My second post of the day! I think I am a bit impressed with myself!

I made this card for my brother-in-law's wedding anniversary. The sketch is from Retro Sketches #100.

The colour palette is from Dynamic Duo's DD#88 - Red & Teal.

And my take on this is...

Supplies used are handmade paper in white, red and teal blue. The embossing folder is Daisy and Swirls from Itsy Bitsy

I embossed the white handmade paper and then dry brushed with Hobby Ideas pearl colours in shades of blue. The tiny red sequins add a pop of colour.

Here is a close up of the embossing.

For the word art panel, I typed out a list and then applied various fonts till I got a good mix of styles. The names of the recipients are coloured with red sketch pen.

Some red grosgrain ribbon and stitching lines with a white gel pen complete the card.

Here is a close up...

Entering this in the following challenges:

Retro Sketches - #100
I used their lovely sketch

Used the colour palette

I think my card qualifies since the embossing has both dots and tiny hearts.

That is all from me for now.
