Good Morning Ladies,
I am not going to give any more 'air time' to the pathetic idiots that caused more pain and suffering on Saturday night, I want to send heartfelt condolences to the families of those that lost my their lives, I cannot imagine the pain that they are suffering. Healing thoughts and prayers for those left injured too.
What is the world coming to?
Anyway on to today's post, I have returned to our regular 'Sketch' Challenge this week, I hope that you like the one I have chosen, if any of you would like some inspiration type "Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 161 into Pinterest or Google and there are a good few cards made for this challenge that will help you with some ideas.
It's a fairly straightforward design though, just use the basic layout, you can turn it whichever way you choose and the embellishments needn't be flowers, they could be hearts, balloons, your sentiment, whatever your imagination allows.
I look forward to seeing your cards.
For my Card I used the new Daisy Delight, stamp set From Stampin'Up!.
I used the main Daisy a couple of times in the background, which I created using the 'resist technique', basically I randomly stamped the large and small sunflower all over the background using Versamark and White Embossing powder, after heat setting I inked over the top with Pear Pizazz and So Saffron ink.
The narrow border was stamped using some of the smaller elements in the stamp set, inked around the edge with Pear Pizazz, the main image is a piece of white card, I used the wavy stems to create a grass look at the bottom (I used only the top part of the stamp) and then added a few longer stems, I then added some of the blossoms, I stamped one of the large stems and then added the small daisy (it's a two step Stamp) the first stamp I inked up and then stamped an image on scrap paper, adding the second (lighter) generation ink, the top layer of the stamp I did straight from the pad as it adds the detail to the Daisy. I then added a couple of the smaller stems with tiny flowers. You can barely see but there is a light layer of Soft Sky Ink across the top of this image and a Pear Pizazz across the bottom. I coloured a piece of seam binding with Pear Pizazz ink and tied it around the topper. I die cut a smaller flower as an embellishment and added a couple of leaves.
I stamped the 'Thank you' from Teeny Tiny and punched it out with the matching punch.
I hope you like my card.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs,
