I am so excited to announce that today is my first official post as a Design Team Member for the awesome sketch challenge site, Seize the Sketch!
And what a great sketch to start off with~
I have to admit, I tend to be one to shy away from trends, but I am really loving the vellum and gold embossing trend of late. I used my brand new Die~Namites Die, Spring Blossoms, vellum and gold ep, to create an airy and SPRINGY card; spring cannot come fast enough!
I cut my branch from white cs and colored it with Copics. I cut it again two times from green cs and added the leaves to the branches, doubling them up for a fuller effect. I then die cut two more branches out in pink. The first (bottom) layer of pink flowers were colored a shade darker with a Copic marker. The second layer of flowers were shaded around the flower centers with a Copic. Liquid Pearls was used for the flower centers. I free hand cut a cloud shape and used it to sponge in a sky on a square of white cs. I framed the sky with a vellum window.
I added a banner, button, ribbon and leaves (cut from the Love Arrangement Die) to the right hand corner. I think this Love Arrangement Die is fast becoming my favorite as I use leaves from it on almost every one of my cards!
There is plenty more AMAZING inspiration from the Design Team on the blog. I hope you can join us! You have two weeks to link up your card with us!
Have a Blessed week!
