Finished one last card before we get our puppy. May be awhile before I make another one--LOL!
The challenge at ODBD is to use amethyst & since that's my birthstone I had to play along. I white embossed the blooms from Sweet William-Small on watercolor paper, die cut them with the matching Spellbinders & then brushed on Tattered Angels mists in 3 shades of purple. The leaves are die cut with PTI Turning A New Leaf. I added sparkle to the blooms & leaves with my Wink of Stella pen--so pretty in real life. The sentiment is by Stampendous & is stamped in Memento Gray Flannel & clear embossed. The piece is punched with a Fiskars border punch & the vellum flag is die cut with MFT Fishtail Flags. I attached a piece of newspaper to the card front using Gesso--wanted it muted & must have used too much on top as you can't see the newsprint at all now. It's spritzed with the same Tattered Angels & I dropped on some splotches. I haven't done the challenge at
Case This Sketch in a long time, but Joni's sketch inspired me. The background may be too much to count as CAS, but I'll enter & let them decide.
I'll post puppy pictures as soon as I can & hope you understand if I get a little behind checking blogs. Enjoy your weekend.
