Before I go any further I have to have a little "toot toot" as my card made the top 3 Waltzingmouse awards for last week's sketch challenge!! I just love joining in the Waltzingmouse sketch challenges each week and look forward to see what the new layout will be!! And I have another card to share for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge which I believe may also fit The Shabby Tea Room "Fresh Living" inspired challenge.
I stamped the label image in pale green ink onto aqua cardstock and then heat embossed the sentiment and little flourish with white embossing powder. I then used my white signo gel pen to add a little extra definition to the oval shape of the frame. I was so worried about a wobbly line that I think I actually held my breath the whole time I was drawing!! You can also see the cotton scallop lace trim better in this photo too!!
I stamped the beautiful border image from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Christmas to create some custom patterned paper - my lack of skill in photography hasn't quite captured all the detail on this card because I also scored vertical lines at 1/4" inch intervals to guide my stamping using my Scor-Pal...here's a close up......
I hope you enjoyed what you have seen today - have a great week and hope to see you again!!
