Especially for You

Hello There,

I love the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch

Here is what I came up with:



Had one of those light bulb moments and knew the stamp I wanted to use immediately. That was the easy bit but I wasn't sure what colours to use. I knew I didn't want to make a spring coloured card. I wanted to go more dramatic and Cupcake inspirations helped me out here with the black, silver and white combo.

The flower (from Visable Images) is stamped with silver delicata ink and covered with WOS which IRL looks lovely and shimmery. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers in white and popped it up on foam pads for dimension. A few enamel gems to finish. I really like this dramatic look and I had a lot of fun making this.

I will also enter it into the CAS challenge at STAMPlorations-using the silver twist.

Have a fun day and hope you all have a good weekend.

  18. I think this card looks elegant with the colors you've used. I also think this, in combination with the design of the flower, makes it perfect for a man or woman equally.
