This card totally goes outside of my normal comfort zone! I was gifted this set from Stampin' Up! around the time of the new catalog preorder and am sad to say I think this is only the 2nd time I've used it. It's such a pretty set.....but it's just not my typical cutsie style. It's good to stretch the zone every once and while though right?
I saw a card that used this sketch during one of my recent blog catch up sessions and thought it looked interesting. Again not a design that I would typically do but it works for this image. I airbrushed this flower using a few different shades of violet and blue to get the soft shades that are typically found in a hydrangea. Then I gave it a nice spritz of vanilla smooch spritz to shimmer it up nicely. I added a few of the teeny tiny pearls to a few of the flower centers to complete the beauty. I think my DH's grandmother will love this card-tomorrow's her birthday :)
materials used: because i care (SU); bordering blue, perfect plum, sahara sand cs (SU); stamper's select white (PTI); tuxedo black (memento); copics; smooch spritz; pearls; nestabilities; silver brads (SU); vintage wallpaper embossing folder (SU)
Back to reality today....we just got home from a quick trip down to Disney World for Halloween. We LOVE Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and with the little lady starting kindergarten next year we figured this might be our last time to get down there for a while. But today it's back to school and life as normal until we get to go visit Mickey again in January for the marathon :) I'm hoping that my mojo has also returned from vacation so I can get back to playing along with all the challenges I enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a great day :)
