2 Sketches 4 You sketch # 55

Good morning to you I hope you are enjoying the summer sun where you are we certainly are here in the UK !

This morning I am sharing my entry into the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 you for this week.
I loved this weeks sketch and enjoyed making this card - it was def a messy one and I love getting my hands dirty !

I used Bazzill basics kraft for my base and bazzill bling for my embossed panel. This was embossed with my cuttlebug swiss dots folder and my bigshot.
The squares were diecut with my nesties and bigshot and I used my new stamp (Impression obsession ornate heart cube) for the heart print isn't it a lovely stamp ? There are 4 on the cube and they are all gorg.

I added some letter stickers to the last square, these are just from stash, and inked them all up with some black ink and a sponge dauber for a distressed feel - I also added a little pink to the centre of the hearts and the letter stickers too.

The lovely lace is another new addition from Wild orchid crafts I got it in a bright white too - love the vintage feel it adds.

The flower is made with cheap copier paper inked up with black and cut with my Dahlia nesties and a roughly cut circle of the pink bling just to tie it all together - The brad which I used to fasten the flower was a green sparkly one and I used my black copic to colour it - I was thrilled when the sparkle still shone through and I love the 2 tone effect it gives - a happy accident !

I inked up the edges of the card too and stuck it all together with my pinflair glue gel - once you've used it you'll never go back to stinky silicone - and thats about it - job done !
