Thinking of You x2

Some great sketches out there this week.  First is Card Patterns Sketch #160

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

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!
