with Love...WMSC11 68

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, August 21, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , , ,

Hi There! Thanks so much to all who played along with last week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! So many fabulous projects! Here today with an all new sketch:Rather than making a card, I made a lil' home decoration wall hanging for my dear sister, Tina who takes care of my fur babies while I am out of town using the new Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® LF-114 Grand Circles and LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circles die templates.I had so much fun playing with this sketch! I took advantage of all that space & filled it up with some of my favorite things :) First, I stamped the sweet image that reads NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE TO DO MY FRIEND THERE'S ALWAYS time for you then worked my way around.I stamped the lil' with LOVE image from the Afternoon Tea Sentiments set then adhered a Melissa Frances decorative frame on top of it. Can you see the aged, crackled effect the crown & pocket watch? All you have to do is brush on some Tim Holtz Rock Candy, wait a few minutes & voila! The crackled effect appears like magic!
Tina crochets so many fleurettes for me to use on my projects :) I asked her for a large one & this is what she whipped up with her needle - what do youth think?

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.
