Good Morning!!! Today is Wednesday and it is time for another Inky Impressions Challenge!! I just love these adorable images. This week Tonya created a sketch!! How Fun!! She challenged us (and you) to create a card with her sketch using an Inky Impressions Stamp.

Here is the sketch:


This is my take on the sketch. I used the Lili's Prayer stamp from Inky Impressions. I just love this paper. I just bought the K&Co. Classics boxed set and this is some of the exquisite paper in it! I just love this red and brown with the gold. I colored my image with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. I cut out the image and popped it up on dimensionals. Rather than add extra layers around the Label 4 cut piece, I brushed the edges with gold to separate it from the background paper. The flower is hand crocheted and layered with some Primas (also from Michael's).

Stamps: Inky Impressions- Lili's prayer
Paper: K&Co., Glossy Gold Metallic
Accessories: Oval punch, Rennaissance Border from Spellbinders, Ivory lace from Wright, primas, hand crocheted flower, pearls, Spellbinders Oval and Label 4

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back very shortly with today's Flutter by Challenge featuring stamps from Sweet N Sassy.

Have a great day!!
