Hey there.... happy Wednesday! Have a little card I made for three challenges: A Blog Named Hero's Topsy-Turvy, ColourQ and Retro Sketches. I love it when I can make one card and have it work for several different challenges!
The ColourQ combo this week was another tough one for me, but I knew that the graphic style of this week's Retro Sketch would work well with them. I had planned on using one of the text image stamps from PTI's Text Styles border set to create the strip across the card front, but when I saw the new A Blog Named Hero challenge to use sentiment stamps in a way different from what they were meant to be used as I decided to use a couple of sentiments from the HA set Year Round Sentiments. The flowers are from another HA set Bold Pop Designs. Despite the fact that the flowers do cover up some of the sentiments, you can still figure out that it says "I miss you" and "Thinking of you". I was quite impressed that I managed to get everything to line up so well just by eyeballing it! I stamped a flower in the following colors, Ruby Red, Pool Party & So Saffron and then cut them out using the matching die. Clear rhinestones were added to the centers. The sentiments were stamped using Early Espresso. I rounded the opposite corners of the card front to add an additional bit of interest.
Thanks for stopping by.....
