Hi there! It's Sunday and time for another fun challenge over at the Paper Players! This week, the fabulous Ann Schach our hostess, with a sweet sketch to try out.
I decided to finally bust out a few stampin' goodies from the Occasions Mini Catalog for my card. I have discovered some awesome projects in blogland, where the floral image from the Bordering on Romance set is water colored...beautifully. However, I am seriously lacking skills in the water coloring department. So, as a back-up, I went with "fussy-cutting" the main flowers on the image, stamped on DSP. I guess I like fussy-cutting (and paper-piecing) more then water coloring...which is basically the lesser of two evils for me. Haha!
Don't look too closely at those "fussy-cut" flowers. They are NOT perfect but they DO look pretty cool popped up on the card, in real life. I also sponged some Blushing Bride Classic ink around the edges to distract you from my horrible cutting skills...is it working? The rest of the image was colored with markers and I added some Dazzling Details to the Riding Hood Red "buds" for a little added shimmer. I also sponged around the Whisper White edges of the main image and punched sentiment to soften it up a bit. All of the supplies used are listed at the end of this post.
Finally, a quick shot of the inside of the card:
