Here's a card I made yesterday, specifically with the following challenges in mind: Friday Mashup to use vellum and/or stitching; the colors from Color Throwdown, the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the get well challenge at Catered Crop (my first time playing there).
So here's my card:
If you want a laugh, check out the bottom left of the sentiment strip - see the pencil mark that I forgot to erase before taking the photo? Doh!
Anyway, onto the card. I white embossed the flower image onto vellum and colored from the back using Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding ink refills and a paintbrush. The frames were cut from a SSS frame die cut set and the bottom right corner of the rectangular frame was completely cut away so that only the curved frame showed.
The sentiment was stamped in black Stazon and then stitched onto the card base using my sewing machine. I just had to buy a new sewing machine because my old Janome up and died. I bought that baby back in the late 80's, so I can't complain.
Thanks for visiting.
