|This is my entry to the CAS(E) this Sketch #101, Less is More #199 |
and Uniko Studio Challenge #16.
I am a mother of two little girls and that means that in our circle of friends there are many little girls and boys as well. That is the main reason why my cards mainly are "children friendly" and have cute critters and so on them. I want to make cards that recipients would like - and that's why you'll see a lot of pink and glitter in the beginning of next year when I start to make a new set of birthday cards for my daughter's friends.. :) But this time I wanted to make something that would please an adults eye. Maybe, at least my daughter didn't like this (It wasn't pink, was the main reason!) so that is a start. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
The rose buds and leaves are from Sketchy Rose by Altenew. I watercolored them with distress inks: Fired Brick and Peeled Paint. After colouring I took my Versamark pen and went through some areas and then added Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set it. You can see it better in the close-up below. Die cuts are from Marianne Design, I die cut them out off craft cardstock and added a little bit depth with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. The sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs. I needed to ground my "Christmas bouquet" into something so I added a little bit of Antique Linen onto the background.
I will link this card to the CAS(E) this Sketch #101 since I used their sketch to make this. To the Less is More #199 - Anything Christmassy. Hopefully this card still is CAS, I am not sure and to the Uniko Studio Challenge #16 - Christmas, Anything goes.
