Inkspiration's Sketch Challenge #8

Hello there,

I have been busy today making two, yes two card's for Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #8. Both have a slight variation on the original sketch for the focal point, but I have followed the sketch for the rest of the layers.

For the first card the top layer is raised on dimensionals and Mother Teresa's words are actually on a layer underneath. Unfortunately my camera hasn't picked this up in the photo. I cut the oval shape with the Cuttlebug and Oval Nestabilities and while the Nestabilities shape was still in place I used my Gelly Roll Pen to outline and accentuate the oval shape on the pink card. I used the eyelet border punch to punch the corner on the focal piece of card and do the border on the other layers.

Stamps: Echoes of Kindness, Occasional Greetings, En Francais BG
Card: Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Versamark, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette & Cranberry Crisp Markers & Re-Inkers
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Oval Nestabilities, Swiss Dots EB Folder, Sponge, Gelly Roll Pen, Pearls, Ribbon, Silver EP, Stamp a ma jig, Aqua painter, Eyelet Border Punch, Dimensionals

For the second card I used the Colour Chart, looking for some different colour ideas. I thought the colours were a bit weird to start with but they have grown on me, and I like the finished result. I used the Watercolour Technique for the rose and I really love how it turned out. I then made the leaves with my crimper. The rose is raised on Dimensionals.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Cheer & Wishes, En Francias BG
