Finally got some time to myself today to make some cards. I really wanted to participate in the Card Pattern Sketch 126 this week. So I used the sketch as my base for several challenges.
Simon Says Stamp online store. When I can't find a stamp here in Canada, I know I can find it there. I was so excited when it came in the mail!
I started with the navy paper from MME's Lime Twist. Then added a few more patterns from the same paper pad. The first die cut (Spellbinders Label 16) was stamped with PB Paisley Swirls in Broken China, then distressed with Broken China and Faded Jeans. The second die cut (traced) was coloured with Faded Jeans distress ink. The third die cut was coloured with Antique Linen distress ink. The flower stamp (from mimi in paris) was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa - I first stamped the image on scrap paper and then on the die cut so the image wouldn't be quite so dark.
I paper pieced the image, using MME's Lime Twist papers and cut it out. The sentiment is from PB's Fun in the Sun. My idea of summer fun is an exciting vacation to Paris, France! I really do wish I was there.
