FTTC42 -- Silke's Sketch


Hello and happy Tuesday, everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC42) ! This week Silke is our challenge host. She is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much of an explanation necessary. You can turn it and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Thanks for a great sketch, Silke!!! We cannot wait to see what you all create!

I started with the newly released set, Christmas Tea for today's challenge. I have a quite few friends who love teas and I know they will love the Holiday cards using the images from the set!
I stamped the tea cup image and the sentiment with Memento tuxedo black. Then I sponged the mat with baja breeze and garden green. The cup was stamped separately again and colored with Copic markers - G85, 82 from Field Collection, R29 from Fuschia Collection and C3, C1 from Cool Neutrals Collection. Then I simply mounted it on the stamped image with dimensional adhesives.



The metalic red mat from Metalic Board Assortments and the acetate mat were embossed with CB embossing folder. These are embossed beautifully! The designer paper was from the retired SU papers....I think I use the paper set a lot these days because all of my recent cards are looked same :P I finally decided to quit hoarding them and I'm so proud of myself, lol.
The flower with brad, ribbon, gold pearls and photo corner were embellished to complete the card.
