Remembrance-Sophisticat Challenge 7

This is the first time I've entered the Sophisticat Challenge and decided to do it after seeing it on the lovely Cheryl's blog. The challenge is a lovely sketch by Lisa:

For my card I've used stamping, heat embossing, paint and some Cuttlebug embossing so it is quite a mixed media project.

  1. Cut a 5inch circle of pink card and stamp on Magenta H.0269 first in Spring Pansy and then in Pretty Petunia VersaMagic inks, layering the darker images on top of the lighter. Ink the edges with the darker ink.
  2. Cut a piece of corrugated cardboard to fit across the bottom of your chosen card blank. Paint with acrylic paint in shades of pink and lilac. When dry make 3 holes with a piercer and secure 3 decorative brads on the card. Mine are by Making Memories.
  3. Choose a vintage image in an oval shape (if you like mine check out my side labels and click on the one that says vintage image downloads as you can download it straight from my blog). Cut an oval shape of lilac card a little larger than the image and stamp all around the edges with a small decorative stamp and Encore Pink ink. Emboss with clear powder. My small stamp is by Anna Griffin.
  4. Emboss the top half of your card blank using the Cuttlebug Victoria folder. Stick the corrugated panel on the lower half. Stick the framed image to the stamped circle and secure to the card with thick foam tape.
  5. To finish add paper flowers with pearl and jewel centres, a small Laura Ashley bar sticker and a sentiment. I've used the one from my vintage download.
