Sketchy Sunday with Melissa Frances

 Today’s post is a card I made for 365 cards. Every Sunday Pam posts a sketch to follow. Here is what I created:


I began with one of my new Vintage Ephemera Stickers that I just picked up. After selecting the image I played with my nesties to see what shape would work well for the background layer. I settled on Labels 11. I cut it out from a piece of Applesauce Bazzill paper. I love this color! While the die cut was still around the paper, I sponged Antique Linen ink inside. My Fiskars Treading Water border punch was used on another piece of Bazzill to follow the sketch. I did end up flipping the sketch on it’s side. The beautiful pink paper is MF called Henrietta. I distressed this layer with my Tim Holtz distress tool. I sponged Antique Linen ink on the remaining layers including the card base. Sorry I don’t know the name of that piece, but it is Bazzill. I used my Spellbinder Floral Accents die to cut the pink flourishes. Here is a close up for you…

100_2073 They were cut from some pink scraps that I had. I used some of my new roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and a few pearls from Kaiser. After putting the entire card together, I spritzed it with Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer mist in Frost. You can see a bit in the photo above but here is another view:
