Here’s the sketch challenge that the very talented Mary Fish designed for the participants this week:
It’s a fun sketch and provides a lot of possibilities for dressing it up or down. Please check them out here http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/
This is my entry:
This card satisfied two cravings of mine. One to make a card with the small squares and the other to try my hand at a vellum flower.
I had an EF that was of bricks, using my brayer, I applied Crumb Cake Ink to the inside and ran it through the big shot. After cutting 12 1” squares, I sponged each edge with the corresponding ink. Can you notice the extra dimension, they really stand out more. Then each square was placed on another slightly larger square using Crumb Cake card stock.
The flower was created using the Blossom Punch and each ran thru the big shot with the polka dot EF. Then using your stylus, each was cupped which made the dots even whiter, placing one layer down and the other layer upwards. The Five Petal punch and a smaller flower punch gave me the next two layers. A tiny pink rhinestone topped it all off in the center. The leaves are actually silk. They are normally used in flower arrangements. They worked perfect with the vellum.
Have a closer look at the flower ~
Got to use some scraps for the inside ~
Thanks for stopping by, I’ll keep you posted on how this card and the challenge works out. *smile*
