It's been an exciting few days, my card made it through to round 2 in the Gallery Idol competition, I'm now into the Top 15!! (that IS amazing!) You can take a look at all the wonderful cards here. I just want to thank everyone who voted for me, I'm so grateful!! SO, in round 2 the theme is Creative Die Cuts and I have to come up with something amazing! (No pressure... I have until Monday!) The other great news is that I'm now officially one of the Dirty Dozen at Splitcoaststampers!! I'm so honored to be part of such a talented group, I can't believe they asked ME!! ... Ok, back to the card, this week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge is by the lovely Julia Aston.
The colors are subtle in my card, so you have a look a little hard for the sketch!! It's in there!! I used one of the motifs from Ovals - Classic Frames by Waltzingmouse Stamps (love this set!) to make the patterned paper, I stamped it in VersaMagic Tea Leaves on some cream card then I went back over the middle sections with a white pen, I love the effect.
The sentiment is from Big Day - Additions by Waltzingmouse Stamps, I love the font! Isn't it gorgeous! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the trinket pin I made. The leaves I stamped in Coffee Archival Ink onto patterned paper using the leaf stamp from the Roses in Bloom set.
Don't forget to pop on over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to see the wonderful creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT. Oh and play along to be in with a chance of winning a stamp set of your choice!
Ok, I'm off to create something... with dies! Wish me luck!!! : )
