Happy Tuesday Everyone!! The sun is out today and it is in the 50's. Woo Hoo!! A gorgeous day and I spent it stamping. Tsk! Tsk on me!


Today I made a card using a new release from Our Daily Bread Designs (Love) that will be available on April 1, tomorrrow. I used the Mojo 80 sketch challenge and Splitcoast's Color challenge CC212 (pink pirouette, riding hood red, and chocolate chip). I love these colors together. I chose my absolute favorite dp from Basic Grey that is available at Our Daily Bread Designs, Porcelain Prints. The dp has the red and pink in their roses. When I was thinking of what I wanted to do with this love set, I really wanted to do roses. I really don't like to mix stamps from different companies for a sneak peek so I had to improvise. I decided to use the challenge idea (TLC207) to cut out the image from DP. I cut out and layered the roses from the same designer paper and placed it next to the verse. It is hard to see in the picture, but I sprayed the roses with pearl glimmermist for some sparkle. The flower in the corner of the image is handcrocheted. It is layered with a pink Pirouette felt flower from SU's flower fusion too and a JW button. The heart pearls and the white pearls were a nice accent and they came from Our Daily Bread Designs. The lace is one of those frugal buys that I was saving for a rainy day. It wasn't rainy today but I felt it was the perfect touch to add more elegance. The ribbon is glittered and that is from American Crafts. (That ribbon I can really hoard. I love it so much). The flourish is a Bosskut flourish.

You have a very artistic style to your work, I love the take you have made on this sketch, nice and textured and great soft elements.

Shirley said...

Your card is just lovely, Chris. I know I saw your cards somewhere for sale. I have thought about doing it on either Esty or EBay and if I did I would want to do cards more like yours. Do you have them bid or do you list a price. Thank you for your information in advance. Also, what is the difference between Etsy and EBay if you know. TIA
Shirley
