Rose Garden



Hi everyone.  Today is the start of the March Sketch Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  Kylie has come up with another awesome, CAS sketch ... which can be used for ANY style of card (doesn't have to be CAS).  I hope you'll come and play along! :)

Here's the sketch ...



I pretty much copied the sketch :)  Love this fun image from Bugaboo called Two Roses ... I know ... there are three :)  I copied the image twice and then masked off the fourth rose to just have the three.  Turned out really well.  The above card is the second version I made. :)  Unfortunately, I thought the sentiment was at the bottom on the sketch ... where was my head at??!! :)  So I have a second version that is basically the same except for sentiment placement. :)




I printed the digital image onto my card front, coloured it with Copics, used clear Wink of Stella over all the black lines (including the sentiment) to add a bit of sparkle.  I cut out the card front with my stitched rectangle mat and then added the Paper Smooches sentiment.  It was a fun and easy card to make --- twice! :)  I hope you'll come and play along with our Sketch Challenge.

And, if you also enter your card into the same challenge located on the Happy Little Stampers Forum, your name is automatically entered for a random, monthly draw prize.

And I'm joining in at Challenge #18 - Birthday at Uniko Studios.  Thanks Sandie!! :)

Love these 3 sparkly roses, Loll! I'll bet it looks good with the sentiment on the bottom too!

Bonnie said...

Excuse me, as I look again the second one (or the first) is there too. Don't know where my head is! I like it with the sentiment on the bottom too.

Bobby said...

And now you have two wonderful cards to send, Loll. The recipient will never know where the sentiment was supposed to be. ;-)

Both variations are beautiful Loll! I love that digi and I love Bugaboo images, they are always fun to work with. I don't think it matter's where the sentiment is place, it looks beautiful either way! Hugs, Brenda
