Lily Pad Cards Lucy's Lovely Lines Challenge
Happy Friday, everyone! Here is my card for this week's Lucy's Lovely Lines Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. First is the sketch:
Here is my card:
I know, I know... I took this one for a pretty big spin, then again I do love sitting in the first row of roller coasters. =) This week's sponsor is The Craft's Meow and I played with Nina Brackett's Life is a Carnival set. Have you seen this set? If not, you have to go and check it out, it's a fabulous set with super fun summer carnival images.
I stamped the roller coaster, fairy's wheel and merry go round in worn lipstick, mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks as so: stamp off the first impressions on a piece of scratch paper, spritz some water on the reminding ink on the stamp then stamp on watercolor paper. Believe me, you will still have enough ink left even if you stamped off the first impressions. I did this because I wanted a fainter background so that they don't over power the sentiment. It comes with the stamp set and is stamped with vintage photo + spritz of water. The Coconut Brown half pearls are from Whiff of Joy Stamps.
That's all I have. Please visit Lily Pad Cards to see what the other Dream Team members came up with for this challenge. They are amazing and are so much better than me in working with this sketch! =) Hope you can join us this week!
