The lovely, wonderful & talented Claire of Waltzing Mouse Stamps has a new challenge on her blog to create a card using the following sketch and be in with a chance to win a Whopping 8 brand new stamps sets due to be released today, May 1st. Well, I have to say that I would be in absolute HEAVEN if I won this prize as I absolutely adore Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
Anyway,...without further ado, here's my take on "The Biggie" sketch.....
I don't know if the photo shows it, but I cut the flowers out from some flocked patterned papers. I added some stitching onto the background stamped with the leaf sprig image from Faux Fun Circles(I can stitch straight - honest!!) but didn't want anything too perfect/regular!!! Stitching in a circle is harder than it looks! I also inked around the edge of the Kraft card base with a little cream ink - just to soften it a little. Well, using black is definitely out of my comfort zone, but I love the finished card.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my card.
Hope to see you again!
