Good morning crafty friends! I have a quick post this morning to share the card I made for the Belles 'N' Whistles challenge. I also made this card playing along with the fabulous sketch by Jeanette over at Sketch Saturday but once again I've deviated from the sketch and quite a bit this time! I'm not sure that my card even resembles Jeanette's lovely sketch anymore...ooppss!!! But it was the perfect nudge and mojo bust that I need to get me going on this card.
B 'n' W is Lace and Frills so I use some cotton lace trim and made a pleated frill with pink crepe paper which I have been meaning to forever and finally got to it and love how it looks. I also used some yummy Martha Stewart Seam Binding that I've crinkled myself and tied a double messy bow and added BG button with hemp twine in the centre. I also added some pink Prima flowers with BG Nook and Pantry brads and one of these gorgeous WOC roses!!!! I just love this chartreuse green...OMGosh, so yummy...I'm hording the rest of them,smile! The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and giggle is a rub-on that I had in my stash!
B 'n' W image called Beary Big Hugs and coloured it with my Copics and added darker shadows, well, I attempted to, add darker shadows with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink and a dry brush like I saw on Angie Hunt's blog Scrap Girl here. Mine doesn't even look close to her gorgeous colouring but I will keep practicing with this dry brush technique but I think I need a better and smaller brush,lol!
Well, thanks so much for stopping by having a wee peek at my B 'n' W card!
