I saw this irresistible sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge and decided to once more show my friend that I am capable of doing a simple card.
This card features Sparkle N Sprinkles’ Shabby Chic Birdhouse set. The birdhouse image is heat embossed with White Detail EP and then lightly sponged with a little Angel Pink Memento Ink. The sentiment, from the same set, is stamped with Rose Bud Memento Ink. That’s it!
I decided to do one more card using this sketch, and I did work a little harder on this one. I stamped the beautiful hydrangea image from Sparkle N Sprinkles’ Spring Florals set and colored it with alcohol markers. Then I heat embossed the same image on vellum with Detail White EP and layered this over the colored image. The “Bloom” sentiment is included in the same set. I stamped and heat embossed it with Amethyst Spray EP three times and cut it out with Spellbinders’ Classic Scalloped Ovals SM die. I used my alcohol markers to add a little purple color around the edges and layered it on the card front.
How am I doing, Kim?
