Limited Supplies Challenge!

Hi and welcome back for another Freshly Made Sketch challenge.  This week, the lovely and talented Cindy Hall has given us this sketch:




Can I just say up front that I really struggled with this card - not because of the sketch but due to having limited supplies on hand.  This is why I don't go to crops, etc because I always want what I haven't got!  Having said all that, after several attempts, this is my final card.



I stenciled onto both the card base and the larger white panel using a Tim Holtz stencil and embossing paste.  The floral image was white embossed onto vellum and colored on the back using Copics.  It was adhered to a white panel using vellum tape and lots of burnishing!  



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Products used:  

Stamps:  Delicate Florals (Penny Black), Strictly Sentiments (WPlus9)
Ink:  Versamark, Old Olive
Cardstock:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Vellum
Accessories:  White EP, Copic markers, Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil, Freckled Fawn Enamel Dots, American Crafts Twine, Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste, Old Olive Reinker

Cheers
Karren

I know it was a struggle with your limited supplies, but it sure doesn't look like it's missing anything! I love those yellow flowers and you've created the perfect background! Love that sentiment too!

Doesn't look too limited to me! Looks fabulous! Love the background and the flowers on vellum are gorgeous! Love it!

I don't want to come across critical, but in case anyone wanted to get the floral set from Penny Black it is Delicate Florals. I have wondered how to use that set since I got it, now I have a beautiful card to copy!

I am SO the same at crafty get-togethers, Karren - you and I would be the ones just sitting, chatting, the whole time! LOVE the texture on this card, and I'm particularly taken with the way you've coloured the flowers. Beautiful!

Thanks for letting me know, Lynn. I have both Dreamy and Delicate Florals and get them mixed up. I should have checked before writing my post :) I've now updated to show the correct stamp set name.
