you are so sweet...

Hello everyone!  Hope your week is going well.  I'm popping in with a card that I made for a few challenges:  the Paper Players (use plaid or checks), the Card Concept (inspiration and my card is clean and simple) and CAS(E) this Sketch (layout).   When I saw the Card Concept inspiration photo it made me think of the stamp and die set that was part of the July 2017 My Monthly Hero kit.   The set includes images of bunches of lavender and sweet peas as well as images of different containers. I will admit that I have only used this lovely set once (hangs head in shame) and that was along time ago!  I used the sweet peas image and the image of a watering can for my card.  I stamped both images using VersaFine CLAIR Morning Mist and then colored the images with Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils.  Once done I die cut with the matching dies.  I die cut some pink check patterned paper with the largest stitched dot rectangle die and then die cut some woodgrain cardstock with the same die.   The woodgrain piece was cut on an angle and adhered it to the patterned paper panel.   I adhered the two images together and then placed it on the panel so that I could determine where to place the sentiment.  I removed the die cuts and then stamped the sentiment using Morning Mist ink.  The image was then popped up on the panel with foam dimensionals and the panel was adhered to a light gray cardstock base.




Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Smoky Slate, Tim Holtz distress woodgrain; Patterned paper:  unknown; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Dies:  Hero Arts and A Jillian Vance Design; Ink:  VersaFine CLAIR

Gorgeous! What a beautiful floral image (I have stamps I have barely used too), so glad you were able to use it with the sketch...that diagonal line works perfectly with the lines of your stamp! SO sweet in the pink, too! The gingham is a great complement! Thanks for playing with my challenge this week at the Paper Players!
