Artfully Sent CTMH Cricut Cartridge/ Urban Paper

Urban paper meets Artfully Sent. This paper is perfect for this particular swing card from Artfully Sent CTMH Cricut cartridge.
You can find this scene card on page 22 of the Artfully Sent hand book. I cut this card at the recommended 7 inch size but it can be cut at 5.5 easily.
I added a few Blue dots and staples for the urban look. The blue dots were a  little too shinny so I sanded them to scuff them up and added them to all of the 'O's.
The Whisper Thick Twine is a perfect addition.
I hope this inspires you to make something from your heart.

Urban Paper, CTMH/ Postive Chemistry stamp set

CTMH's paper pack called Urban is a wonderful mix of urban inspired patterns. I've used the corrugated metal B&T paper as my background for the Positive Chemistry stamp set
I played with our new Watercolor paper and paints to create my colorful solutions. I stamped using black pigment ink and clear embossing so my black outlines would not run when water was applied.
I just love the sentiments that come in this stamp set.
I hope this inspires you to make something from your heart.
