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.

Larkspur - SSS61 and sneak peak




Well, here we are for another fabulous Sketch Challenge at The Sweet Stop.  If you've never played along with the sketch challenges over there, you may want to try it out this week. There's a spin to the challenge to finish off the inside of the card and there's a PRIZE!!!

Here's a little sneak peak of an upcoming release.
The image of the Larkspur is one of the new Clear Stamps That Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is releasing on June 28th. Isn't she a beauty!!!  The Larkspur image was illustrated by the ever talented Leah Cornelius. Actually, it was stamped twice on the base and then once again, cut out and mounted with foam tape for dimension. It was colored with Copic Markers. The raised image has tiny sparkles in the center of each flower.
The papers are from Close to my Heart. Colors are Juniper and Creme Brulee.  There are two rhinestone flowers on either side of the image.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other challenges with this card:
Charisma Cardz - Bling!
Drunken Stampers - Color image and lots of Bling!

So gorgeous Nancy! I love what you do with flowers:) I am going to have to totally lift the way you used those fancy tags on either side of the oval mat, so pretty!

So. Much. Beautiful. Love this creation!

And did I just read "hand stitching?" Are you serious? What do you do in your non-crafting time ... work as a surgeon?

That is some PERFECT stitching!
