Hey, y'all, Happy Saturday! Anybody doing anything fun today? We're just hanging out...going to meet some family for lunch later and have some Mexican food...YUM! So before I go, I have a card to show you that I made last night. Take a peek:
I refuse to tell you how long it took me to make this card. But it was a VERY long time. I decided to use the Weekend Sketch Challenge #92 as my starting point, and then I chose my image from Stamping Bella. I inked up the grass and flowers with an Always Artichoke and Rose Red markers, then huffed and stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock. I wanted to give my main image a little something extra, so after I cut and embossed it with my Labels One Nestabilities, I sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink. Then I decided to go a step further and use the Cracked Glass Technique to age it a little bit more. Then I hand-cut a Chocolate Chip mat for the image and distressed the edges.
Then I moved to my base layer, where I cut a square from my Artichoke paper from the SU 6x6 Prints Pack, rounded the corners, and distressed the edges. Then I matted it with Vintage Cream and Chocolate Chip, and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine. I pulled out some lace from my stash and wove some ribbon through it for a little oomph and wrapped it around the base layers. Then I adhered the layers to my 5 1/4" card base. The main image is popped up on dimensionals, and I added three Glass Pearl Flatbacks from Stamping Bella to the top right corner.
See, it really wasn't that involved, but SERIOUSLY...it took me forever. Oh well, I had fun! I hope you like it. Have a fabulous Saturday!
