Retro Sketches #57-Hey

I'm wrapping up my month as guest designer at Retro Sketches with this week's sketch.  It's based on a  beautiful card created by Arielle, seen here.  This one's perfect for using up some scraps, so that's what I did for my version.

I had a bunch of scraps from the My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy paper pad, so I mixed and matched those until I came up with an arrangement I liked.  On my version, the larger pieces is double the length/height of the smaller ones.

I left one spot blank so I could fill it with a stamped image.  I picked the light bulb from the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Breath of Fresh Flair set.  The bulb's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out, then adhered to the panel with a dimensional dot.  I wrapped some white twine around the panel, securing it with a bow.  The "hey" sentiment is stamped just beneath the light bulb image in black ink.

Thanks so much to Arielle and the Retro Sketches crew for having me as a guest this month.  Be sure to stop by the RS blog for more inspiration.
