Well here I am again today with another post (shocking huh?) - Sometime last week I received a very nice comment from Priscilla and an invitation to join in on the fun at her blog http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ Midnight Madness Tuesday Sketch challenge. So I thought why not give it a try and here is the result. I hope you like it.
Lately I've discovered that having a "Sketch" as a starting point has been a real help to me in designing cards. It really has sparked more creativity then I use to have when I had to figure out a layout on my own.
I recently purchased a stamp set from Inkadinkado (Best Friends) that had this wonderful Coffee Image in it and I hadn't yet inked it up so away I went.
I colored my image with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol. Then I added Crystal Effects to the Coffee and White Liquid Applique for the whipped cream (Yum!) I layered these with Labels2 Nestabilities Dies. I added 3 small green brads (Queen and Co.) The Designer Paper is from Die Cuts With A View and I added 3 Dew Drops (Grapes and Leaves). I found some Lavendar yarn/cording that someone sent me in one of my cans of assorted ribbons and found it fit my paper perfectly. Then I added a Prima Flower and a Purple Brad. My focal image was raised using foam mounting tape.
