Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #13

Saturday, September 4, 2010

A new sketch challenge from Waltzingmouse Stamps Challenge blog, I have to admit I did find this one a little tricky, a bit geometric for me maybe. Anyway, I gave it my best shot and this is what I came up with. 

Yea, like I said, tricky, I kind of evolved the sketch a little! To try and make it work : ) Anyway the lovely paper is from 7Gypsies Conservatory collection. I made the flower using this tutorial and card from the Mariposa Stack DCWV.

I painted the white side of the card with a mix of Beige and Gold Creative Inspirations Paint. The flower shape I used is from Paper Flower Templates Set 1 - The Cutting Files at The Digichick.

The lovely stamped sentiment is from the Sweethearts set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used Chocolate Brown Ink It Up to stamp it. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.

I hope you can see it but I stamped behind the flower. I stamped the circle motif from Victorian Fripperie by Waltzingmouse Stamps in Versamark Ink and embossed it with some Mirror Gold embossing powder.
