It's time for another sketch from the operators. This week is a special challenge with an awesome prize! Head on over to the 411 blog, for more details on that.
In the mean time.. because this card is going to be given to one lucky reader of that blog, I really wanted to take my time and make it nice.
I cut my base to regular card size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". The second layer (black) is cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" to leave a 1/16th of an inch border all the way around
The third layer (kiwi) is cut to 5 x 3 3/4". For this layer, I sponged kiwi ink all the way around, pierced holes, then I ran this piece through my big shot with the rose dry embossing die. I also sponged ink over the top of this to get the layers of the flowers to pop out more.
I stamped my flower on whisper white cardstock and masked the flower, then I stamped the script background on top and sponged all the way around my cardstock. I pierced some holes on two corners. I colored the rose and stamped the I love you image in dusty durango. I added crystal effects to the top of the flower to make it shiny.
I hope whoever wins this card really enjoys it. I had so much fun making it. I took my time, relaxed and really thought about what I wanted. With a quick and easy sketch, I hope you all have time to play along!
