My Sketch Challenge card
I am on such a high I just can't tell you, you will probably all think I've lost my marbles when I try and explain why!
But first I will give you the list of who made which card on yesterday's blog!
Brenda, Lynda, Margaret, Lilian you all got 6/8
Val got 5/8
Janet you got 3
Michele it was trickier for you as 3 of them were yours!
Thank you all so much ladies for both taking part and playing along xxx
Karen, I still haven't received your card my lovely, please re-send and I will share it xx
Now onto today's sketch, super simple sketch this week, Michele suggested that I add a theme with the sketch, so I have and that theme is........
Flowers and Trees, you can choose whichever you please, or both if you wish!
My thinking was that most of us have at least one stamp/die in that category, so I hope you enjoy the challenge.
My card (the reason for me being on such a high) is a TOTALLY STAMPED card, I started with a plain piece of white card and made a background using some of my new Stampin Up stamps .... Gorgeous Grunge, Delicate Details (the lace border) and Avant Garden which is the main image, such a detailed stamp!
In all my years of paper crafting I have never really had too much success when it comes to stamping, I just couldn't get the pressure right to get a good image.
This changed when I discovered the 'faux misti' stamping tool, I started to gain confidence and then I started buying the Stampin Up stamps and could even stamp free hand, without the stamping tool, which is how I made the background to today's card. I just cannot explain to you my excitement, I know Sue understands my giddiness as she has struggled the same as me with Stamping, so I can't wait for her to have a play on Tuesday!
I know my card is nothing special really, it's just a huge deal for me to start with a piece of white card, use no backing papers or dies and end up with a fairly good result!
I hope you all enjoy the challenge as much as I did, I will make one with dies too!
Have a lovely day ladies
Love and hugs
