I have 3 cards that need to be completed by May 30, hopefully I can get them all done in time. If not, that's okay too. I just finished one of them, it is for a sketch challenge at The Stampsmith and CLP. I used a photo stamp from Stampsmith called "Lily" as the focal point of this card. I must say I got pretty frustrated trying to get a good image, I must have tossed away a dozen or more images before I finally had a decent one. Not the greatest but I just had it. Not sure why I had such a hard time stamping it; it could have been the glossy paper I used, or the ink, or the stamp, or just me not having a good day stamping. I had to leave it for a day before I was in the mood to complete the card.
The card measures 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". I cut out the fairy and part of the borders from one of the pages from Prima Fairy Belle 6x6 DP and used them to decorate the card.
I used the remnant to make the lattice behind the stamp image. I sewed vertical lines on the paper every 1/4" increment and then cut out the strips. I built the lattice by weaving the strips with some difficulties. Yes, sometimes I love to test my patience, lol. I then mounted the lattice on 2 layers of DP. I distressed the DP and cardstock with chalk ink and distressing tool. I tear the paper at 3 spots and added doily cutouts behind the openings.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
