Thank you Stampin' for the Weekend, I really needed an easy challenge this week. Now, I don't know about you but I like a sketch challenge. Truth be told I like most challenges but sketches are a great starting point. AND when you can pick any image and theme you want it's practically a gift. You can fill in the gaps in your card stash or make something you know you're going to need soon. Well for me, this time last year we were getting ready for Annie's wedding so I need an anniversary card. So that's what I made but you can make any kind of card you'd like.
Purple or lavender card are difficult to get to come out looking the same as the actual card. This is close but it looks better in real life. The flower on this card was made with several layers of the same paper. To make the layers stand out I ran a blending pen with purple ink around the edges of the petals. On the grey paper with the cross hatching pearls were added where the lines intersected. They were made with a Lilac Viva Pearl Pen. If you are going to need a lot of pearls for your card or project you might want to invest in one of these .
