First: a HUGE thank you...
to Tara and Deborah at Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge Blog. They, so kindly, gave me a special mention on the winners page from their last challenge (scroll to the bottom). I am very honored.
On to the next challenge, #4. Luckily for me, it is a sketch this time:
I hope you all like the Funky flowers set as much as I do,
cause I'm using it again:
A couple of notes on this one.
I do not have a fancy photography set up, nor a fancy camera. I basically stand the cards on my desk, turn on my very old desk lamp (from the 60s, I think), turn off my flash and shoot away.
So, first off, the band across the center looks brownish in the photo. It is not brown at all; it is actually a pewter color. Very similar to the Pewter SU embossing powder (love this stuff) that I used on the flower centers and around the larger oval. I really like how the edge of the oval came out. I new it needed a little something. I just rolled the edges on my Versamark pad.
Secondly, the pearls actually match the stamped flowers almost perfectly and
do not look garish at all in real life.
A small SU banner sentiment and die finish it off.
