I have another post today. This is a three challenge card. I started with the Penny Black Saturday challenge for July which is Flowers, the design I took from Freshly Made Sketches #298, and since I used a new goodie along with a favorite oldie this is perfect for Just Us Girls week 404 using something old and/or new.
After choosing my stamp Penny Black's Delightful (old) and a die cut sentiment Simon's Thanks (new) I began by masking off the area of stamping according to the sketch. I used only the upper third of the Delightful stamp. I stamped it several times, masked it added some light color with a stencil brush and then colored it with Zig markers. I finished it with the thanks die cut from fun foam and vellum for the outline portion. Several sequins were added to the stamped area for a bit more color and I cut the panel with a stitched outline die before mounting to a card base.
I love challenges to give me mojo, but I have to say this card really came together when I thought of the person I was giving it to...maybe for me at least that is the secret to giving a card just that extra bit of love.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
