For the start to our working week I’ve got a bit of a shabby chic birthday card to share with you inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
The floral image was fussy cut from the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. This is a Black and White monochromatic pack of 12″ x 12″ paper which gives you loads of options. I’ve even used a little strip of it on the label behind the flowers.
The image was coloured in Watercolour Pencils. The colours I used are listed below.
Granny Apple Green
To create the distressed look on the layers, I ran the edge of my paper snips right along the edges. This card has got lots of texture and it’s fully loaded with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some fabulous depth.
If you want to know more details, please get in touch with me. Want to order the products to make this card? Full list of supplies are at the bottom of this post. Orders can be placed online or by giving me a call. I’d love to help you out.
As I look at today’s card for Sketcchtember Day 11 I feel it’s a bit shabby chic. I didn’t start out aiming for this but the sheet I chose from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper set the tone for it. Do you find the creative process taking you somewhere completely different to where you had planned? Isn’t that the fun of creating!
With a colour palette of Blushing Bride, Gray Granite and White this card has a soft look to it. I layered the vellum detailed wreath on a full wreath to make the script more visible. The wreath underweath was distressed on the edges with Gray Granite using a sponge dauber and I cut off any excess that was protruding in the centre from under the Vellum.
Some Blushing Bride leaves were stamped and die cut and interwoven with smaller silver leaves.
I added 2 small bits of ribbon with glue dots under the sprigs to give the effect of a bow. This gave it less bulk than having the knot of the bow in there (I did try it!). To top off my little foliage arrangement I added a cute bow which is part of the Country Wreath Dies.
The Cottage Wreath bundle is one of the bundle we’ll be using in our FREE VIRTUAL EVENT for World Cardmaking Day. See all the details below.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and I look forward to catching up with you tomorrow for more #sketchtemberchallenge inspiration.
