Weekend Sketch Challenge 23

I'm caught up!!! :)

This card ended up being a bit of a stretch from the original sketch, but this is what I came up with for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 23. You can find her original post with the sketch here.

I started with a 4 1/2" square card base of Sage Shadow, then cut out my Whisper White (4 1/4" square) and Soft Sky (4 1/8" square) layers.

Then, I inked up the large flourish stamp from Baroque Motifs with Sage Shadow and stamped it onto the Soft Sky layer. I attached the WW and SS layer together before adhering them to the card base.

Next, I glued my On Board Blossoms & Basics chipboard flower to a piece of Groovy Guava DS paper, then cut it out with my exacto knife. I used my Basic Grey Precision File Kit to sand down the edges of the flower before using Mod Podge and sprinkling the flower with Transparent Glitter.

While that was drying, I cut out a 1 1/4 x 2 1/4" piece of Sahara Sand and stamped my sentiment with Groovy Guava ink. I then cut out a 1 3/8 x 2 3/8" piece of Sage Shadow, and used my ticket punch on the corners before adhering them together.

The flower was attached to the card base off center with two of the petals hanging slightly over the edge, and the sentiment was layered on top with pop dots. Easy peasy! :)
