Lace Kanzashi flower
Saturday, February 5, 2011
Good morning, it's time for a new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC33). This one's pretty easy, I turned it on it's side for my card. Here's the sketch!!
I used Fancy Phrases from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the sentiment. My sewing machine was 'having a moment' apologies for the wonky stitching!! The lace flower I made is a Kanzashi flower.
I stamped the frame using Frame-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I masked the border and stamped the little hearts from Sweethearts in a pattern in the centre, firstly in a light pink then using VersaMark and I heat embossed them with some clear embossing powder.
The patterned papers are from October Afternoon - The Thrift Shop and Papermania Rose Garden. I inked the edges with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Now for that 'other' card I mentioned!!
It's a fun card, I like the movement of the butterflies through the card and I love the big butterfly but I think I just overdid it a bit. Oh well. The heart stamps are from the Sweethearts set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The star swish and little star stamp are from Teeny Trees from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Don't forget to have a look at the fabulous creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the Design Team. Oh and there's an exciting announcement over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, go check it out!!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!! AND Happy Birthday to fellow Mischief Maker Lenet!!
