It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:
This was a difficult card to make. Sunday is Mother's Day here in Australia and it will be my first Mother's Day without my Mum. I made this card for my lovely Mother-in-law and poured all my love into it.
I used the retiring Petal Palette stamp set. I just love this set and will be sad to see it go. I inked up the rose image with my markers and then watercoloured with a Blender pen and ink. The sentiment is from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue. I also used 2 sets of Designer Series papers from the Occasions Catalogue - Gingham Gala and Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut paper.
Can you spot a new colour on this card? My colour combo is Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist and Purple Posy. Purple Posy is a brand new In Color - coming in the new Catalogue on June 4. It's such a soft, pretty shade that you're going to be seeing a lot more of! Sadly, Lemon Lime Twist is leaving us. Even though we have a few shades of green, I'm really going to miss the vibrancy of this tone.
I hope you like my card, and hopefully my Mother-in-law will too! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!
