It's MIDNIGHT MADNESS time again!!! What a cool sketch this week to work with! Have you checked out Priscilla's Blog yet ... HERE's a link or you can use the blinkie in my sidebar. Look's like fun, huh!!!
Priscilla always has the most unique sketches to play with and her DT creates some awesome cards!!! Please ... check them out when you get the chance ... you won't be disappointed!!
This is what I came up with today! What do you think?? Isn't this little girl SWEET!!! I downloaded this image from the Art Creations Friday Blog ... be sure to check this site out also, especially if you love vintage as I do!! Every Friday she offers downloads of pictures or backgrounds from which you can create an ATC or card and link it back to her blog. Some very unique images & creations ... you don't want to miss this one either!!
Back to my card ..........
This sweet image was cut into a 2-1/2" square and the purely pomegranate matting was cut into a 2-3/4" square. I've used the Mary Engelbreit Rose corner punch and double matted with basic black cs. Very little use of stamps & inks on this creation!! The only stamps used where 2 different silouette images, one from Just for Fun and the other from Endless Creations. They were stamped on a piece of Whisper White using Versafine Black for another card but I ended up doing something different so this "piece of scrap" was left laying on the worktable. Since I accidently cut through it while playing with my new Spellbinder (Timeless Heritage)Shapabilities .... it ended up being a perfect HEART LOCK for today's card (see closeup).
The papers used on this card are: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate and several different Graphic 45 pieces. (LOVE Graphic45 papers!!)
Embellishments used were: Mary Engelbreit Rose corner punch, Martha Stewart branch punch, Prima flowers, Target gem brad, Spellbinder (timeless heritage) Shapeabilities, Nestabilities (circle & scallop circle) diecuts, Mark Richards gold ball gem, and the flower gems I've had forever and don't remember who makes them (sorry)!
I NEED A FAVOR FROM YOU ALL .... sometimes I think I go into way too much detail and "talk too much". Please let me know what you think. Seriously ... am I talking way too much (I have a tendency to go on, and on, and on .... see what I mean!!! Do I need to shorten my wording on my posts ???? I'm afraid I'll lose followers because I don't know when to quit .... I would love to have your input on this topic!! THANKS and thanks for stopping by today!!!
