I needed a birthday card and I decided to play along the sketch challenge on the Friday Sketchers blog. The card is for a baby, but I have decided that I am utterly incapable of making a decent looking traditional card for a baby, so I am just going to stick with what I like.




The Tilda image is coloured with Koh-I-Noor pencils and a Dove blender pen. The flower stamp is coloured with distress inks. All edges are distressed with Antique Linen ink. There is stickles on the flowers, the bling on them is from Heidi Swapp.  The frame around the text on the back of the card is a stamp from Prima. Oh, by the way, I am having such a blast with my new Spellbinders Labels dies!

Thanks for looking!

My online technique class contiunes and I could not love it more! Lesson 7 was about making our own flowers, instead of always relying on store bought. How easy and versatile this technique turned out to be and I LOVE it! The tricky part was to get the petals to not curl too much while I heat it with my heat gun. This is a card that I made with my practice run flowers. 🙂

And here’s a close-up of my flowers

Haven’t decided what I want to use the card for yet, so there’s no sentiment.

Thanks for looking!
