Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my post. I haven't been here for awhile because I've been pickling. I know, right? Why would I trade my crafting time for pickles? But, now that the cucumbers are all pickled and some relishes made and canned, and while we wait for the tomatoes to ripen, (they're next on the canning list) I can play with my paper toys.
The card I'm posting today is for two challenge this week - The first is the gorgeous color challenge over at CR84FN - don't ya just love these colors and the great inspiration images?
The second challenge I'm entering is over at Card Patterns with this sketch #129 challenge -
Here's my card for both challenges.
The CS colors I used are from Gina K Designs Pure Luxury line - White, Sweet Corn and Kraft. I started my card by creating the bg using dp scraps I had and the Bargello Technique found at SCS. The image is from the Springtime Silhouettes StampTV Kit. I used DI Walnut Stain to stamp the images and once dry, I painted the areas on the dress form with my new Creative Inspirations Paint - giving the form a soft, iridescent sparkle and highlight. (I love these paints). The lace layer was made using a Cherry Lynn Designs "Italian Flourish" die. I distressed around the edges of both the focal image and the sweet corn layer. I finished the card off with placing the sentiment sideways and adding some nail heads, then tying a soft yellow silk ribbon along the base and embellishing it with a mulberry rose and some MS punched leaves.
Thanks again, for stopping by! I hope you all have a fabulous week.
