well the house is still full of sickies here but luckily I made this card a few weeks ago as I just had to get some ink on my new Delicate Dollies set - one of the few items I preordered. Was I getting ink on it for a purpose - of course ;) It's for the sketch we have for you this week at Just Add Ink. Here's the sketch.
Sorry about the blurry sketch image but its either that or a tiny thumb nail :(
Ok first up a confession this is the first time I have used Concord Crush, but something about the arrival of Wisteria Wonder insisted that I pull it out. The thought occured to me that the Dollies could make nice flower heads, and if I flipped the sketch what was in my head could work, hopefully! I started by stamping text in Wisteria Wonder over the Crumb Cake base, then I rubbed some white ink over where I wanted my smaller flower (dollie) to go. Then I stamped the smallest Dollie in Concord Crush over the ink cloud. The larger Dollie I stamped in versamark on Crumb Cake and then white embossed, twice. I then sponged and rubbed Wisteria and Concord Crush ink over the white embossing. From the second flower I trimmed out the centre and mounted that on top of the first, adding a rhinestone to finish it. The big double scallopy border represents the vertical cross card element of the sketch, I also used it as a place to add the sentiment, and couldn't resist adding some (wobbly) zig zag stitching as a little balancing decorative element. The final touch was to add stitching to represent the stems of the flowers. (Ok I did do that before I dimensionaled on the sentiment strip). I really enjoyed my little experiment into playing with ink and layers on layers of ink and images. Something I will have to revisit.
Thanks for visiting :)
