Hello, this fortnight's new challenge is a sketch, check out the Paperbabe Stamps blog for details...
Firstly I toned down the bright white card base with distress ink then used the new the 1cm strips stencil for the base. I secured masking tape on the fold of the card to mask the back and a little to hold the stencil at the bottom. I painted the stripes in black gesso using one of those sponge brush thingy, which gave the stripes a little arty look.
The semi circle piece I inked in the same tattered rose distress oxide as I used in the rose, then added white gesso through the polka dots stencil. I like how the gesso went mat when dry. I've cut up a die cut doily for the trim and added sewing detail with a pattern tracer wheel.
The rose layers stamp set give the most gorgeous effect for the roses, I trimmed around them with a slight border, and used plenty of foam adhesive.
the sentiment was built from the birthday wishes set.
