Floral Sketch Nouveau


I made this card for Jen's Sketch For You To Try this week. Check it out - it's a fab one! And if you play along this week you get the chance to win a gift certificate from Your Next Stamp.

I finally managed to dig out my GORGEOUS Nouveau Chic DSP to make this card. As soon as I saw it in the new catty I knew I had to have it! But of course, other projects got in the way and I hadn't managed to use it! The coordinating colours are Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow and Basic Grey. The main image is from Bloomin' with Beauty (a fave of mine!) and stamped with Basic Grey on Whisper White. I coloured the image with SU markers then added another image that I had cut out over the top for dimension. I added some crystal effects over the whole image to make it shiny.

The sentiment is from the Wow Flowers set and was stamped with Sage Shadow and punched out with a 1" circle punch. A filigree flower and brad was fixed through the centre of the greeting circle. I added layers behind using the larger circle punches and coordinating cardstock. On the scallop circle I added some white dots using a signo gel pen. Some pearls from the Pretties Kit and some faux stitching finished things off!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Bloomin' with Beauty, Wow Flowers
Ink: Sage Shadow, Basic Grey, Apricot Appeal
Paper: Nouveau Chic DSP, Apricot Appeal, Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Whisper White
Accessories: circle punches, Pretties kit, filigree brads, markers, crystal effects, paper piercing tool & template, white signo gel pen
