My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Water Lily Easel Card

This card was made for Digi Day over at SNR & PCP yesterday, but, I just couldn't get the grandchildren to nap at the same time so I could finish it in time to play along. I'm just having a real hard time lately getting good pictures of my cards. I think I need a new camera.

The sketch used for the front of this card is from the Wednesday Card Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

This is an Easel Card. I really am addicted to making them. The theme was Mother's Day. I was going to put Happy Mother's Day on the inside where I have the water lily, however, after punching the fan border on the designer paper, I thought the image to the left of the water lily looked like a frog. Vivid imagination!!! Anyway, I decided to make a second water lily to place next to my "FROG" instead of words.

Each Water Lily, a digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, was printed three times, colored with Copic Markers, cut out and layered with foam tape for a 3D affect.
I used my new Nesties, In Spades, for behind the focal point and in the corners.

The hand stitching around the card front was done with Embroidery Floss.

Other Chalenges for this card:
Dutch Dare - Easel Card - Repeat something. I repeated the water Lily.
