Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. Friday and Saturday we were spoiled with 60 degree temperatures. This morning it is snowing and we are in the deep freeze again. That is what it is like living in Colorado. At least we had a few nice days though. I hope it is warmer where you are.
Today I want to share a card I made for Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try. She has changed things up this year to make it a monthly sketch challenge instead of a weekly one and will be giving away a big prize at the end of the year for people that do them all. I am going to challenge myself to do all 12 sketches and use my PTI year of the flowers sets with them each month too. Since I bought all 12 of them last year I am hoping this will be a good way to make myself use them. Here is the sketch
This is what I came up with
I started by stamping then coloring 2 of the small Carnation's which are January's flower with Copic sketch markers RV10,R83,R85 and the colorless blender. When I was done coloring both of them I cut out just the middle piece on the second one and added it to the first one to give it some dimension. I cut the leaves by hand then crumpled them to give them some texture and added them to the flower. The Sentiment is from the Faux Ribbon set. The pink background paper is from the PTI Pretty Pastels Paper Pack. The Vintage Cream piece was embossed with the Tim Holtz embossing folder. Scalloped lace and machine stitching with black thread finishes it off. I am also entering this card in the Color Cue Challenge 11 too
That's it for now. I hope your week is great one and I will be back soon with more to share.
