Some great sketches out there this week. First is Card Patterns Sketch #160 http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2012/04/sketch-160.html
Thinking of You in black and ivory. The image and sentiment are from Gina K. Stamped the flower in black on ivory cardstock and cut out with a Nesties Petite Oval, stamped Timeless Textures by Gina K in Distress Ink Antique Linen and sponged the edges lightly. Cut a Nesties Label out of tan cs and sponged black ink on it before I removed it from the die. Used Core'dinations cs for the long strip, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and lightly sanded. Still practicing with Liquid Pearls, so I did them on a black strip in case of any mistakes. Added the flourish by Spellbinders.
Next is Sketch #131 at JUGS http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2012/04/jugs-131-sketch-challenge.html
Quick and easy card. Embossed some Ocean Mist cardstock and lightly sponged with Colorbox Chalk Olive ink. Embossed the gray strip and lightly sponged with Versacolor ink in a light blue. Layered these onto some Fresh Asparagus cardstock and onto a light gray base. Stamped the sentiment in olive ink and sponged the edge lightly with blue ink and layered onto a Sizzix circle tag. Tinted the seam binding with Glimmer Mist and tied onto the tag. Layered a bunch of Prima Flowers that I hardly ever use and added a pearl to the center.
Thanks for stopping by!
