Something Blue...WMSC16 53

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 25, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , ,




Hi There! Time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

This card is rather sweet & simple.
I inked up an image from Very Vintage labels No. 10 with VersaMark ink, stamped then embossed with white embossing powder. After using a S5-022 Labels Ten die template to cut/emboss the image, I stamped the sentiment & little motif, topped it off with a few pearls & added a flower embellishment.
If you find some crafty time, please feel free 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 & be sure to see what the other Waltzingmouse DT girls & Mischief Makers have created. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it WMSC16 so we won't miss them! Note: you may use any stamps of your choice in our challenge entries. Of course, we love to see what you create using Waltzingmouse Stamps images, but they are not required to play.
***Please be sure to upload all of your Waltzingmouse Stamps cards/projects in the Gallery
Supplies Used: Stamps:
