Good morning! Reverse Confetti has a fun monthly challenge, called Sketch For You To Try. Each month, they provide a card sketch for you to use as a basis for your own project to link up to the blog post.
Here is this month’s sketch:
For my project, I used the Something Wonderful stamp set to create a pretty bouquet. It’s starting to feel like spring in my neck of the woods (at least the longer days and sunny weather outside my window look like spring… temps have been lying, though.) I love black and pink during the winter… in my cards, in my clothes… but for some reason, about mid-February, my mind switches gears to navy and coral, sometimes together, sometimes apart. You’ll see lots of coral in my projects over the next few weeks. 😉
I stamped the pretty, lacy bouquet from Something Wonderful three times using the three lightest shades in the Tea Party ink bundle from Altenew, then fussy cut them (but you could also use the coordinating dies). I also die cut and heat embossed a greeting from the Kindness Cards stamp and die set using Platinum Embossing Powder.
I arranged the flowers in a pretty bouquet on my navy A2 card front, then adhered it with dimensional foam adhesive, adding the sentiment die cuts and strip to the bottom corner. I also added a few little floral dots (I can’t remember the name of the stamp set I used… sorry!) using white pigment ink on the blue background, just to give a bit of interest to the card base. The final step was to add some sequins to represent the three small circles at the bottom left of the card sketch.
Now it’s your turn! Use the sketch and your Reverse Confetti supplies to create as many cards as you like and enter them in the linkup! You have until March 29, 2018 to enter your projects to be eligible to win a $20 shopping spree in the Reverse Confetti store!
That’s all for me today! Have a marvelous day, friends!
