BLOGGERS CHALLENGE - SKETCH

Hello Everyone- If you are here to join in on my SNSS Challenge - first check out this post then go HERE! 


Today is BLOGGERS CHALLENGE DAY and this week's challenge is to create a project using the sketch below 
BCsketchsept


Let me tell you about my card ~ I stamped the image on Neenah White Card stock with Staz On ink. Using a paint brush, I used Creative Inspirations GARNET paint to paint my background. This is such a gorgeous color with just a touch of beautiful shimmer! SOoo pretty! I then mixed the Creative Inspirations SUNSHINE paint with a touch of gold Pearl Ex - to give me a warmer golden tone for the scroll work around the image. I currently only have primary colors - so I couldn't get the right shade of brown, so I grabbed the Creative Inspirations WINTER FROST paint and my caramel ink refill to mis a light shade of brown for the pine cone image - soooo pretty!!!

This is a really elegant card. I'm sure this is one that looks so much more special in person where the extra shimmer you added really comes out. This is the first card I've seen with the SU deck the halls paper - really nice.
