This time I based my card on one of the first Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges that I missed out on when it went live. I really like this sketch, and was looking for a reason to try it out, even if the challenge itself is long over!
Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:
I used a paper doily for the first time, and LOVE the result. Such impact and I had nothing to do with it! All I did was age the edges a bit with some Antique Linen Distress Ink (quickly becoming addicted to those babies!).
I stamped the background of my card, which is basically a Kraft coloured base, with the border from Say it With Style (Waltzingmouse Stamps), repeating it on a diagonal. I did this with my gold Brilliance pigment ink. I created my flowers (are you sick of them yet?) with my old printer-paper-sponged-with-ink trick using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and the Antique Linen, and layering the colours. The larger flowers have rhinestone brads for some extra bling. I stamped my Labels 10 (WMS) to create the tag, and inside used the Congratulations from Say it With Style and embossed it in gold. I just set my foam dimensionals too close together to raise my sentiment.
I am thinking this is the card my friend will go with, and I am really happy with how it turned out... glad I could finally put the sketch to use!
