with love...WMSC8 38

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, July 31, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | ,

Hi There! This week flew by as I thought it would and it's time again for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Here is my with love card:

One of my favorite colors is Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist. I love the look of the muted aqua flowers made using a flower die template from the S4-109 Flower Creations Three set but they seem to get lost or blend in on the tan background, so I stamped black flourishes using various stamps from the Very Vintage Labels No. 10 set. I think this helps give them a lift & a bit of dimension. What do you think?

I had so much fun with this sketch - mixing the circular shapes up a bit - making a few flowers, stamping a few images & using a few larger brads.

To make the lil' tag in the photo below, I inked up the with love stamp from the Victorian Fripperie set & stamped it on a lil' tag cut using the S4-081 Tags Five die template.

I hope you can join along with this week's sketch challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it WMSC8 so we won't miss them! Be sure to see what the Waltzingmouse DT girls have created, (listed on my side bar). I hope you come join the fun this week & play along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for complete details.

That's all I have for today! Thanks for looking - Be Sweet!
