Cameo and vintage lace (WMSC37)

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Good morning, I'm back with my card for this week's new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. A fairly straight forward sketch this week, I added a few extra bits! Here's the sketch. (WMSC37)

I also used this week's colors from Color Combos Galore #182. 

I just love this soft muted color palette!! Isn't it gorgeous!!

The cameo I made from white Fimo and a silicone mold and painted with some acrylic paints. It's layered on a piece of cream flower trim. The label is stamped in Sage using Holiday Labels No.14 by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the sentiment is from Fancy Phrases also Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I stamped one of the layers in Sage using Text-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The gorgeous vintage lace (seriously amazing details in it) I received in a lace swap from the lovely Sylvia Nelson a while ago. The pearl trinket pins I made.
