There's a great new sketch (WMSC34) this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I'm still being inspired by the signs of spring in the garden and I love this color combo of lemon, light green and soft pink (my pink has a slight lavender hue to it!), it's so fresh and cheerful! Ok, here's the sketch!
This one's open to interpretation, you could make it as simple or complex as you like.... you know how I love my layers and texture though!
I used Text-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps to stamp the background (the script font is my favorite!). The sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes also from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I switched the text a little, it did say 'happy' instead of 'smile'.
The little flowers I made using the smallest flower from the Sizzix Tattered Florals die. The tiny bird I made from white Fimo and silicone mold from MoldMuse on Etsy. I decided not to paint this one, I thought it looked nice white.
I haven't done any paper quilling in ages!! Shame on me, it's how I first got into card making!! I really like combining it with other techniques and elements now. Here I just used some simple scrolls and eye shapes to make up the leaves and vines. I cut out some simple leaf shapes and scored a line down the centre to add a little extra detail.
I used the Swiss dots embossing folder to make the dotty paper at the base of the card. I also added a little lemon seam binding, some picot ribbon and a pearl bead pin that I made. Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS made this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Oh and don't miss the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz on the 17th of February, the theme is 'Buttons'!!
