Hi there everyone! I hope your week has been treating you well so far.
I have a card to share with you that was inspired by something I saw at Kim Badelt's house while there last weekend making cards and giggling and making cards and laughing...
Kim had a card displayed with some hand made flowers. She has shared the link for the tutorial with me so I gave it a go.
Firstly, this is actually a card for the current challenge over at CAS - Colours and Sketches. I am your hostess there for the whole month of August. It's been great seeing what everyone has come up with for the previous challenges. This week I have a sketch for you -
Just remember that you must make a card that is CAS and has stamping on it.
Here is my DT card -
Isn't this handmade rose so pretty? If you are interested in having a go, please visit Tania Gould for step by step instructions.
The rose has been made but using my Fancy Flower Punch (SU). I have inked the edges with Whisper White (SU) and spritzed the end result (which really can't be seen in the photo). The leaves are from a new die that I purchased at the Craft Show and is called ..... whoops, I can't find the packet but I think it is called 'Leafy Vine'. I sponged Old Olive (SU) on the edges.
I have stamped the sentiment (from the Express Yourself set - SU) with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.
Geez, the photo is a bit harsh on the eyes. Once again, it's a bit blurry so sorry about that.
This card isn't exactly 'mailable' either so if you were going to make these roses, you would have to hand deliver or package them up.
I hope you like this sketch and would like to join in this week.
Over at the challenge blog, you can find heaps of beautiful inspiration from the DT.
Thanks so much for looking xx
