And I just can't stand it anymore... I have something exciting in the works or at least to me it is exciting, some changes are coming to my blog! Stay tuned I don't know what date it will be happening, but just had to give a teaser! =)
Ismaki Sketch Challenge #20 has gone Round and Round! And was it a hard challenge for me. I have not made many round cards, and then it had the added option to not use any pattern papers. Wow that is like a double whammy! But I did it... and really like how it turned out. I used a chocolate brown Bazzill card stock and cut the circle. Now I know I have a circle cutter somewhere, but after looking for 30 minutes I just traced a CD and hand cut it. Ok you are asking about the flowers on the card stock. It was killing me to not have patterned paper, so I made my own design with a stamp from Papertrey Ink and Versamark Ink. Love that stuff! I then used my Fiskars extra large Squeeze punch for the pink circle, and did tiny white gel pen stitching around the edge. I knew I needed a small image to stamp. I then remembered this tiny little House Mouse stamps that I purchase a couple of months back at a garage sale, for $1.00! I colored him with my Copic Markers and then used a Fiskar's corner rounder for the corners of the image. I found some pink prima flowers in two shade of pink and centered them with Copper Stickles. The sentiment is from House Mouse as well, and I used a Copic Marker to darken the edges of it to appear to be matting. Now I the cording is not on the sketch, but for two reasons it is there. 1- I just got it yesterday and really wanted to use it, 2- I smudged the card =) Oops hated to trash the whole card. I like how it turned out. Hope they like it at the challenge site.
