Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, thanks for stopping by today!  It was wonderful to see so many people play along with last weeks Pet Theme Challenge!  This weeks challenge is to use the following sketch, feel free to rotate it, but try to keep all elements in place.


I had some fun with this weeks sketch.  I used my Scor-Buddy to create score marks on the Basic Grey paper, then added some 1/8" Scor-Tape and embossed it with Dark Brown Embossing powder, so my panel would work along with the sketch.  I also added a strip of 1/2" Scor-Tape, then folded some Seam Binding to add a ruffle look.

All stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I stamped the Crochet Poppy image in Ranger Coffee Archival on White card stock, then cut with the Crocheted Circle Die.  I stamped the image again (stamp off 2x's for a lighter shade) then added the verse from the Faith Set in Coffee Archival, cut with Spellbinders Circle Die, layered on a larger Chocolate circle, then to the Crocheted Circle die cut.  To embellish my card, I added some Zva Creative Pearls and some die cut butterflies.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs - Faith, Crocheted Poppy
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Chocolate
Card Stock - Tangerine, Chocolate, White
Other - Big Shot, Scor-Buddy, Zva Creative Pearls, Scor-Tap, Heat Gun, Embossing Powder, Spellbinders Circle Dies, ODBD Crocheted Circle Die, Glue Dots, Seam Binding, Big Shot, Butterfly Die, Sponge Dauber, Basic Grey Sweet Threads

Beautiful use of the image behind the sentiment. It looked like a soft cracked glass effect. Lovely soft card in rich colors.

Gorgeous card. The embossing lines are perfect on that beautiful background. The crochet circle stamp looks beautiful behind the sentiment. And of course, the pearls and butterflies are the perfect finishing touch.
