Card Patterns #172: the last sketch

Today, it is time for the last Card Patterns sketch. How sad, I am going to miss the sketches so much. I hope you will play along with us this week to say goodbye to Card Patterns. The last sketch, by Michelle, has a circle element, which is always a favorite of mine. Here it is:


I did a thank you card, for all the inspiration I’ve gotten from Card Patterns. Thank you Michelle and Tracy! You have done a fabulous job running this challenge, and I loved being on the design team for the past 6 months.

Lots of layered circle elements on this card. I made two rosette flowers and stacked them on top of each other, finishing the top one off with Crackle Accent in the centre, and smearing some Rock Candy Stickles on both of them. I discovered that the large flower fit perfectly into the stamped circle from the new Road Trip stamp set from Tim Holtz. It is a car themed stamp, but I love the frame it gave to the flower. It was stamped on patterend paper with Victorian Velvet ink. I finished the layered circle elements off with a dry embossed and sanded kraft core scalloped circle.

The background was made by stamping the Fabric Design stamp with white paint. After it dried, I inked it with Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap, and misted heavily with Perfect Pearls and water. I stamped the sentiment with Archival Coffee, and a few dots with Frayed Burlap.

For the square, I stamped a thank you definition stamp with Jenni Bowlin Soap Powder on ledger paper.

The crinkle ribbon and roses were dyed with Distress Stains (Victorian Velvet, Frayed Burlap and Tumbled Glass). I love the way the pattern shows through the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting!

Daardie achtergrond is rĂªrig pragtig, dit is verkeerd om dit so te verberg onder al die ander dinge! LOL
