MTSC40 Flower for Silke..

Hello everyone! As you read this I have taken my kids out of town to see their grandparents, great-grandparents, cousins, uncle and aunt. It's the first time we've seen them all since Christmas, so I'm sure we'll have a wonderful time catching up!

Today's card was inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge 40 and the Flourished Timeless Tuesday Challenge 34. The Flourishes challenge is being hosted by my rockin friend Silke this week, so of course I had to give it a go!!! The challenge was to use misting on your image. Now I have never done this before, but I think it turned out OK?!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Not Quite Navy (pierced all around the edge - I don't think you can see it very well) and some Bella Bleu DSP that my wonderful friend Pam sent me! The next layer is more Not Quite Navy that I've punched top and bottom with the Fiskars Lace Border Punch and then added three panels of Very Vanilla that were embossed using the Swiss Dots DF. On the main panel I've used the Penny Black 'Blush' Stamp, coloured with Not Quite Navy marker and then misted with water and then stamped onto Very Vanilla card and cut out with Label 4 Nestabilities. I then used a blender and Creamy Caramel to add a very light edge around the embossed section and also stamped the sentiment from Short and Sweet in Creamy Caramel. I popped this panel up on foam tape and finished off by adding some light cream satin ribbon and a couple of Kaisercraft Latte Pearls.

Stamps - Blush (Penny Black), Short and Sweet (SU)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Bella Bleu DSP
Ink - Not Quite Navy (marker)
Accessories - Label 4 Nestabilities, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Swiss Dots EF, Blender Pen, Markers, Light Cream Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Latte Pearls, Foam Tape, Water Mister, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack.

Well that's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
