I decided to make another card for the monthly sketch challenge over on the Unity Sketch Challenge Blog. For this entry I used stamps from the January 2011 Kit of the Month.
Paper: Notecard (Paper Studio); Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye "Blush"); Cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Memento; Copic Markers; Tattered Rose DI
Stamps: Unity August 2011 KOM
Other: Crinkle ribbon; twine; button (MME); Dimensional foam adhesive; PTI Edgers Die #2; Corner Chomper
I used die cut a piece of cardstock using the PTI edgers die and then inked it with Tattered Rose distress ink around the edges for a softer, feminine look. I stamped the flower from the Unity set 3 times using my stamp-a-majig for accurate placement. I then coloured the flowers using my Copic markers.
I adhered the patterned paper to the card base before adhering the die cut/stamped piece. I then added the embellishments of ribbon, twine and button. The sentiment was stamped on cardstock which was also distressed with tattered rose and then I simply rounded off the corners.
I like the whole feminine look and feel of the card. The patterned papers in that 6 X 6 paper pad are simply beautiful!
It's starting to really heat up again outside! I am pretty sure we are going to get in the pool the minute my darling little Natasha gets home from school!
