This card is for MMSC34. I really like their sketches but whew, they are always very challenging. This one was a bit easier and I needed a break from making things for my craft sale. I enjoy the work but it is hard to know what people will like, how many to make, what colours, sizes etc. Anyone have any insights, please let me know!
I now kinda wish I had used larger petals so the card would look more balanced but I was working from my hand drawn version of the sketch, not from the one you see here. This one was in my iPhone, but it times out after 3 minutes; I have it set that way, I could change it but I’d forget to change it back and my battery would be gobbled up in no time so I work from my own sketch.
I think the only elements you might not be able to figure out easily are the photo corners. They are from a single Cuttlebug square embossing folder. I cut it diagonally to get two corners from it. Time consuming and fiddly but so pretty. The flower is actually two, one with 4 petals cut out from it and another with 6 petals cut from it. That left two larger pieces, I layered all 4 to get what you see on the card. The petals are sponged with antique linen and worn lipstick Distress inks.
