My card today, has been made with a couple of challenges in mind:
Inks: SU - Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Smoky Slate; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: SU Card - Wisteria Wonder; SU DP - Perfect Plum; White Lustre Card; Sakura Stardust Pen; SU Marker - Perfect Plum; SU Punch - Pansy; Gems
I've used the sketch from The Sweet Stop - sadly it is their very last challenge and while I've not played often, I have always enjoyed the sketches they provided. As soon as I saw this sketch I knew which stamps I would use. I created the background by randomly stamping three of the flowers over the card. I cut a panel of design paper, tearing the bottom and inking for definition. On the white panel I stamped more flowers and this time added some sparkle with a Sakura Stardust pen. I stamped a few more flowers on scrap card and design paper, punched them out and added gems and sparkle. All were added to the card with pinflair gel. I finished the front with this lovely sentiment - telling us to stop and be happy! The inside is simply a mat in Wisteria Wonder and white card on which I stamped a few more flowers.
I know that last night and this morning a huge storm hit the UK and that there have been several deaths, and over 500,000 homes left without power. According to news reports the storm has now moved on, I do hope that all my UK friends are safe and well. Take care and I'll see you tomorrow.
