CD Sunday - Sketch

Good morning everyone, hope your weekend is going well. I have a little something to share with you today that I've done for the challenge over on CD Sunday which this week is a sketch.  Now I know some people love sketch's and some people don't, I like to be challenged and this sketch was a bit of a challenge for me, in fact this is the second card I did as the first one wasn't good and ended up in the bin!
For this card I printed two papers off the Artylicious cd Damask Delights on to pearlised paper, this I matted onto silver mirri, the circle is a die from Marianne and the strip was punched using a Martha Stewart punch which didn't really like the vellum but I just about managed. The mirri mat behind the image had been put through the cuttlebug just for a bit of texture and the image which is a new stamp for me from Elusive Images is stamped with Perfect Medium and dusted with mica powders, finally I used distress inks around the edges and added the pearls at the top.

I am entering this into
 2 Sisters challenge which this week is flowers
Fairy Tale  Challenge which is flowers
Stamp Man which is distressing
Crafty Ann's which is Ring in the new but don't ring out the old

I do hope you'll come over to CD Sunday and join in with us, we'd love to see you!

  5. Totally gorgeous Jenny, that stamp is stunning. I love the bps printed on pearl paper, it gives them a lovely 'glow' and I bet they look even better in real life.
