Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #35

Happy Saturday! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week'sWaltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. First is the sketch:


Here is my take on it:


I made a tag this time. =) I cut a piece of vintage cream cardstock using the Labels 16 die from Spellbinders. Inked the piece with tattered rose distress ink using an ink blending tool with foam applicator while the paper was still in the die. I then stamped the beautiful ornate border from the Victorian Fripperie set using the same ink.


The apple basket is from the Peace and Plenty set and is colored with Copic markers. After cutting it out, I mounted it on a piece of circle cut using the Standard Circles Large die and inked with tattered rose ink.


The sentiment is from the Teeny Trees set and the seam binding is dyed with tattered rose as well.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)
