I don't often do many layers, but it was necessary to accomodate the sketch spec's.
The image was stamped using Versamark Sepia onto a cream shimmer card. The base of the card and the Series 1 Triple square was cut out of a soft beige card and I used strips of the patterned card to add a bit of interest to the frame. I also introduced the soft sage green card which picked up the stripes in the printed card, perfectly. For the band accross the middle of the card I went with a lace/trellis die from Marianne and added a border on the top using a MFT Border Crown die and a strip of lovely vintage Daisy lace. The top left corner looked a little empty so using the same patterned card, I cut this Memory Box flourish and positioned it over the 'empty' corner. Everything was given a good going over with Distress Ink Tea Dye. The sentiment was mounted as a 'tag' and I prettied up the corners with these lovely metal trimmings from my friend Paola. She finds these amazing trimmings and thankfully shares them with me - thank you Paola! Also from Paola, were the 1mm pearls all over the card.
I have also decided to enter this card into the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge # 49 - Metal Mania. Please follow the link to read up on this challenge - perhaps you would like to enter as well??
I was very pleased how this came together - a great sketch and fun to implement!
Why don't you give it a go?? Here is the link.
