Fluttering with Love...WMSC19 52

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 16, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , ,

Hi There! Here today to share a card I made to hopefully get you inspired to play along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge :)
I took some liberty with this sketch in order to accommodate my lil' tag displaying the sweet with love sentiment from Victorian Frippery. I inked up one of the images from Text-It with Memento Desert Sand ink followed with randomly stamped various sized roses and leaves from Roses in Bloom. Using the Copic marker combination shown in the photo below, I outlined the images rather than coloring them in solid. What do you think? I think I like the softer look of the transparent flowers. Something different :)
For color inspiration, I played along with this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe.

One of the unique features about Spellbinders™ die templates is the ability to cut, emboss & stencil all with one die! This gorgeous lil' butterfly is a perfect example of how easy these three techniques are to accomplish.
These are the Copic markers used for this card:
Thanks for visiting :) Hope you have a great Saturday!

 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 WMSC19 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.

REMEMBER: Tomorrow, Sunday, October 17th, 3:00 AM Eastern Time I will be waltzing along with the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps October Blog Waltz sharing an Autumn/Fall themed project! Hope to see you then :)


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Text-It, Roses in Bloom, Victorian Frippery
