Here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
I used some distress ink on the image but I think I went a bit too heavy with it. I should have used a lighter colour and/or touch! We learn from our mistakes and I will know better next time. The image & sentiment are from Verve - Floral Symphony. I stamped the flower part 2 times - 1st with the outline portion and then with the solid portion of this stamp - I popped up the solid colour portion over the outline portion. I used SU's Purely Pomegrante for the flower and sentiment and SU's Wild Wasabi for the stem of the flower. Maroon & white pearls are from my stash. I do not know who manufactured the card stock or the shiny paper I used for the scallop circle. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the Spellbinder scallop & classic circle dies. The sentiment was cut out with a Lattice rectangle die. I also applied 2 small pearls to the glittery butterfly. I love butterflies! I used a Creative Memories punch to punch out the butterfly. I applied 2 sided tape to a piece of maroon card stock, applied lots of glitter and then punched out the butterfly. The design paper is from SU and the pink ribbon is from my stash. I didn't add a square under my image as there was no room on this standard sized card and I thought the butterfly helped to add a bit of interest to my card. Other than the distressing; I am very pleased at how this card turned out.
I am looking forward to attending a watercolour class at my favourite LSS tomorrow evening which is being taught by Nicky. I attended a class taught by Nicky last week and we made some gorgeous springtime cards. I still need to take a picture of them but Nicky has one on her blog if you would like to take a peek. Tell her Anna sent you!
I was supposed to attend my niece's class on Saturday but as it was such a gorgeous day, Opa wanted to go out so we spent the day in the Niagara region instead. I went to Krista's house yesterday and picked up the card and stamp kit and will have to take a very close look at her blog to put the cards together. I love all 4 of the cards! You can see them on Krista's blog. Be sure to leave her a comment and tell her Aunt Anna sent you. If you live in the Toronto or Oshawa area, I highly recommend the classes that Nicky and Krista teach. I have learned so much from both of these talented and creative ladies!
Thanks for stopping by! .
