We have a beautiful inspiration piece over at The Card Concept this week and it was hard for me to narrow down which elements I wanted to use. No surprise, the team has created some really pretty projects and you are going to have fun with this one!
I chose to use one of my favorite flowers from the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set. I stamped on Canson Watercolor paper using WPlus9 Black Dye Ink and then colored using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry. The pretty mint typewrite inspired the Mint Macaron card base. I cut image layer using Stitched Rectangled from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and comes from the Lovely set by Ellen Hutson (Essentials by Ellen). Finally the little details. I added some lace trim and gold thread (hard to see in the picture) to keep with the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch. I also colored this for Kathy Racoosin’s Thirty Day Coloring Challenge….a great way to motivate yourself to color just a little every day!
Just a reminder that this is my second post of the day. Please check my card for Freshly Made Sketches as well. I hope you enjoy this and that you are having a great week. See you soon!
