Lovely Lavender Roses...WMSC42 50

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, April 9, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Any fun weekend plans? Yesterday after school, we took my step teenage children to see the hilarious movie "Arthur" starring Russel Brand. I definitely recommend seeing it if you are looking for a good belly laugh :)

On another note, it's Saturday so the means it is time again for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
Here's my interpretation:
This CAS sketch was the perfect opportunity to challenge myself to stamp my own "patterned paper". I made two cards with the only difference being I used different types of ink to stamp the overall text image. The text image on card #1, the one on the left or shown below, was stamped using a water soluable ink. You can see how the Tattered Angels Dew Drop Glimmer Mist caused the ink to slightly run. I actually like this look myself.
On Card #2, the one on the right or shown below, was stamped using a dye based ink. did not cause this type of ink to run. I am still happy with it, but I love the more distressed look on card #1. Which do you like better?
I used the following Copic markers to color the rose images:
In case you were wondering how I stamped the patterned paper, I put together a tutorial to share.

Step 1: Stamp rose bud images from Roses In Bloom, color with Copic markers:
Step 2: Stamp text image from Text-It:
Step 3: Add a bit of overall shimmer to patterned paper using Tattered Angels Dew Drop Glimmer Mist, use heat gun to dry.
 I don't know if you can see the overall shimmery effect, but it sure does look beautiful IRL and on my computer screen :)
That is all I have to share today, so I hope you have enjoyed what I made and maybe feel inspired to play along! Please be sure to stop by the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for some amazing inspiration from the Mischief Makers and several other Waltzingmouse DT members :) I'll be back tomorrow with an all new CR84FN challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Roses In Bloom, Spring Baskets, Text-It
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Shapeabilities® Nested Pennants, Grand Calibur
Other: Tattered Angels Dew Drop Glimmer Mist
