It's Tuesday again and that means sketch time at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! This week I kind of mixed it up and create a square sketch but of course you can adapt it to a stard size card too:) That's what I love about sketches-they are a great starting point.
I used this sketch to create a very feminine, vintage style card with lots of swirls and spritzing. The base of the card is a 4 1/4 square then I layered on a large piece of DSP from the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper pack that I had stamped one of the images in Basic Gray on. For the main image I stamped the flowers using Pink Pirouette ink, however I apparently didn't clean the stamp very well and the image turned out more of a pinky gray, but in this case it worked to my advantage because I like the effect:) However I now have a pink ink pad with some splotches of gray on it,lol!
For the word "grateful" I partially inked up a stamp from the set Pursuit of Happiness using my Basic Black Marker. As per the sketch I wanted to add the 3 embelishments but rather then just adding tiny pearls I used the teeny button brads from the Vintage Trinkets then placed the medium sized Pearl Jewels in the center. My favourite part of the card is the gorgeous Rose Red Seam Binding and all the embellistments that were added to it. I tied the ribbon around the DSP then added a scrap of Victorian Crochet Trim to the center of the knot. Next I tied some Linen Thread into a bow and added a mini safety pin (from the Vintage Trinkets) with a DSP tag. To finish it off I added a Paper Daisy that had been spritzed and folded.
Have a great day!
