Sweet Friend Sketch!
Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!
Today's card is made from the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing. I just love her blog, you should take some time to peruse her beautiful work.
This sketch was a bit challenging for me, with all its components. I started with my favorite chocolate chip for the base, followed by some regal rose and the Sweet Always DS paper.
The stamp set I used is a new one I stamped off a couple of images while visiting my friend Lois over the weekend, it is called Asian Artistry and is a Level 2 Hostess set from the new catalog coming out July 1st.
It is stamped with black stazon onto watercolor paper. I colored it in with old olive and bashful blue for the dragonfly. I used some pumpkin pie to color in the flower heads on this, but after getting the card all together I felt the image really didn't fit my card design, so I punched some flowers out with my three flower punch and some regal rose card stock and added some white mini brads and pop dotted them up around the grass. It really changed the feel of this set and took it completely away from being Asian, which I don't do, I don't know how to capture that feel, I just know the colors I used for this card is NOT Asian.
The sentiment is from the Best Yet hostess set and is stamped onto white and punched out with the 1-3/8 inch circle punch and layered onto a scallop pumpkin pie scallop circle and is up on dimensionls. I pierced around everything! The large circle and scallops are cut out with my nesties and cuttlebug. I added some chocolate chip brads and some regal rose ribbon.
This next card is one I did last week for Karen's sketch and never got a chance to post:
I love making Americana type cards, I have one I will show you later that I have been working on made with the crimped envelope technique.
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
