PWC89: Prettie Sketchy Wednesday
Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm back with my promised Prettie Wednesday Challenge card for you. This week Frances has given us another of her amazing sketches, and I really loved it!! If you didn't arrive from Julie's blog, head on back to Prettie Mama Christie's so you don't miss any sketchy goodness. If you'd like to play along we'd love to see your creations, please upload them to the Paper Pretties Challenge Gallery and use keyword PWC89.This week I'm using our S.W.A.K. stamp set. I've loved this set from the first time I saw it because I love all the extra little elements. I chose not to use the main image of Luke and Lexi for this card, but instead included the balloons and Valentine images for my main image. I also used the heart background stamp to stamp on one of the layers of designer paper - cool, huh?I used my new back of Be Loved paper from My Mind's Eye (thanks Joanne for all that enabling!!) which was layered with some Riding Hood Red cardstock, and Kraft for my card base and for the main image panel. Copics worked pretty good on it, don't you think? I used some chamomille distress ink from PTI to darken all the layers. I also did lots of paper piercing (which is why I didn't get the photo taken before the sun went down!) and added this fabulous riding hood red taffeta ribbon. LOVE it!I finished off the inside with another layered piece of dp, and the sentiment. Don't forget, SWAK and Time for Cake are both on sale this week for 20% off as this week's featured challenge sets. Now hop along to Jackie's blog to see what loveliness she has for us today. Catchya later!
