Morning all! Phew finally had time to make a card! I've been very busy reorganising my craft space and the rest of my house after a looooonnnngg trip to Ikea LOL! It is all really neat and tidy now and everything is easy to find and I have a gorgeous comfy chair too! Finally I can start to get the house back to normal after the extension building work! Anyway, on to my card. I have made this to the gorgeous sketch over at Friday Sketchers challenge which I have turned on its side, and also for the Colour Create Challenge which I loved this week which was to use all white except your image. It was great fun getting out all the white things I have and deciding how to put them together!
I have used the gorgeous Musing Melinda stamp from Whiff of Joy, I just love her and think she can be adapted to so many different occasions. I've coloured her with copics and then stitched and distressed the edges with antique linen distress ink before adding some stickles to the edge.
I have distressed all the edges and stitched around them on this gorgeous distressed white paper from Basic Grey sugared paper pad. I have stitched a swirly pattern onto the paper for some added texture and interest and then dotted half pearls here and there on the swirls. Instead of paper for one of the elements of the sketch I have used a strip of tulle so that the stitching is still visible.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and have been spritzed with glimmer mist.
Thanks for looking and have a lovely Monday! x
