After spending two days with my Kleenex tissues it's nice to have a nose that enables me to upload a card :)
How are you?
I combined this challenge with this weeks' sketch of the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge
Here's this weeks' sketch:
I had such fun creating my own background paper and embellishments; especially working with cardboard... I've seen it before on several blogs and I just wanted to try it myself.
These are the supplies I've used:
White, off white and cream cardstock
White embossing powder from Zing
Ink: Versamark, London Fog , Pumice Stone distress ink.
A piece of cardboard from a box which I got at the supermarket; I removed the top layer :)
( It took me a while because all these tiny little pieces stayed behind but it's fun to work with!)
Creatable Flower dies, Spellbinders labes one and Shapeabilitites "Lattice" dies, Cuttlbug Mini Tag dies
Waltzingmouse Vintage Christmas stamps ( sentiment)
Darkroom Door "Floral" background stamp
Some pearls, a button and some burlap twine
At first I stamped the background with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder:
I used one of my Labels one dies to cut out a piece of cardboard. I painted it with white acrylic paint and let it dry. I inked the edges with pumice stone and I used the same ink to ink the top a bit .
I made a diecut with my Lattice dies, embossed it and left it in my die while I inked it up a bit. I love the result.
I made three flowers with my flower dies, glued them together and added a pearl in the center.
I cut out the mini tag; stamped the sentiment and inked the edges. I added a small button and some twine.
I think I have some blogs to read:).. I hope to visit all of you today...
Have a wonderful day!
