Sweater Weather - Madeira Hello


The current Tuesday Trigger "Sweater Weather"- a sweater from Anthropologie 
(one of my favourite stores...)


This card uses the colours, the buttons and the subtle pattern found in the sweater. The sweater is also quite symmetrical looking - 4 buttons, 2 pockets, lines on the collar...
 
I stamped the madeira pattern in versamark, but it didn't stand out as much as I liked once I tried putting the buttons on, so I used some pastels in brown (popping pastels technique) to make the pattern a bit darker. I saved one of the curly labels for the sentiment.  I use this layout a lot - I love symmetry! Hope you like it too...






Stamps:  A muse (madeira, hello)
Ink:  palette hybrid burnt umber, versamark
Paper:  SU (kraft, summer sun, chocolate chip)
Accessories:  SU pastels, SEI buttons, SU linen thread, SU curly label punch, corner chomper
