Started my card for PTI CAWU a few days ago & finally finished it up today. I was immediately drawn to Heather's card on Day 4 of the release as I loved the layered striped kraft die cut frames. It made me think of the stripes in the Mix & Mat: Flourishes die set.
I used a scrap of kraft cardstock & cut it as usual. Then I used another scrap & cut it again. In order to layer the pieces for a crossed pattern, I had to extend the cutting of the second piece--just a little tricky, but it worked. The images & sentiment are from Corner Adorner: February. The inks are PTI Scarlet Jewel, Prairie Grass & Honey Nut, with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate for the sentiment. Think it might have been better not to do a shadow for the sentiment, but too late now. The card & Corner Adorner die cuts are Vintage Cream cardstock. Gold Pico Embellisher was used for the flower center & I'll put an Easter sentiment inside. I'm also entering The Snippets Playground, SSS Monday & SSS National Craft Month.
Today I saw the sketch for FMS & immediately thought of the Stamplorations set called Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments. I chose the lily image, turned it 90 degrees & heat embossed with Liquid Platinum.
The coloring was done with pink, green & yellow Zigs. A waterbrush was used for blending. The sentiment from a company out of business was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I matted the panel with pink cardstock & decided to keep it very CAS with no splatters or embellishments. I'm also entering Stamplorations Theme & Sketch, Stamplorations Never-Ending Anything Goes & HLS Watercolor challenge. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: also entering SSS National Craft Month.
