Hello Crafty Friends!!
It's the beginning of a new month and that means there's a new Sketch Challenge happening right now over at DCWV!!
Here are this month's awesome sketches...
For my inspirational project I made this super quick and easy card.
Blue China Stack (DCWV)
Eileen Hull's Flower Layers w/ Heart Petals Die (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz's Garden Greens (Sizzix)
Stitched Greetings (Pink and Main)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Rhinestone (Heidi Swapp)
Versamark (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko)
White Embossing Powder (Imagine Crafts)
Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Kuretake/ Zig)
2way Glue Pen (EK Success)
For the flower on this card I die cut 4 of the smallest flowers with Eileen Hull's Flower Layers Die.
I water colored my flowers using a pink marker and a water brush, adding more color to the edges of the petals.
Then I curled and formed the petals so that two flowers were mostly closed. These will be the two top layers.
I then layered all four clowers and glued them together with clear liquid adhesive.
For my card layer I used plain white cardstock for the card base that I cut to be a standard A2 (4.25"x5.5" folded) sized card.
For my mat & overlay both measure at 4"x 5.25". I used a glue pen to attach the overlay to my mat then used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach my mat to the card base,
I cut out two leaves using my Tim Holtz Garden Greens Die from more white cardstock and attached it to the card front.
I hand cut a pennant measuring 1"x3" from more blue paper from the Blue China Stack then stamped thanks in versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
And lastly, attached the pennant, leaves, and flower using Fabri Tac.
And here is my finished card!
This card came together really quickly and really love the look of the blue and whites!! These papers really remind me of these porcelain dishes and balls my mother-in-law collects. And just like those porcelain pieces, these papers are absolutely gorgeous!
I hope my card has inspired you to join in on the fun over at DCWV!
