MFT WSC26 & July Guest Designer Entry!

please click image to enlarge

WooHoo! i'm so excited that i had some crafty time today and got to play in MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club. Sketch 26 is just awesome- find the sketch at this post!

It's also time for MFT's July Guest Designer Contest- with a chance to win free goodies & play along with the amazing DT for the next release!! All the deets are at this post on SCS if you want to join me in the chance to win! Since this card fits the 'touch of texture' challenge- i'm gonna enter this card- gotta love a 2fer ;)

i needed a card for my husband's grama- who will turn 91 in early August- this sketch was the perfect reason to get it done & now it's finished with plenty of time to spare!

The rose image is from MFT's Inspired by Flowers (set 2) & it really did the work for me- this rose is so gorgeous, no?!

i stamped the image in brown ink on a cream paper panel. i cut out the image with a nestie, and sponged all around the shape (while it was still in the die) using some ranger distress ink (tea dye). i loved how it looked so much that i didn't think it needed any further coloring! the sentiment 'LOVE' is part of a longer sentiment from the same set- i just inked up the part i wanted.

i didn't have a cream pearl flourish, so i colored one with a copic marker (E51 egg shell),
a little lace, a pretty doily dienamic, some nice papers, sponging & a simple sentiment finished off my card. i so hope Grama will love it!

here's a peek at the inside: i think MFT's leafy flourish die is gorgeous!!
