S.O.U.S Little things

Hi everyone.

I have played along with the card sketch on the StuckOnUSketches blog again this week.  I love the sketch by Sandi Clarkson.  Here it is:

My card looks like this: 

and here is another photo and a close-up of the stamped image and sentiment:


I just love this vintage pram and the sweet little sentiment that goes with it!  It is the itty bitty set by unity and simple stories.  My background panel is build up of 2 panels as in the sketch, but in the photo's it does not stand out very clearly.  I have used the front and back of a dp by MME and with the shading that I've done with distress ink, the two panels look like one in the photos.  IRL one can see that there are in fact two panels.

All the supplies that I've used are the following:

Paper:  MME (the sweetest thing, #ST1075, #ST1081)
Ink:  Versafine onyx black
         Ranger distress ink (Antique linen, Walnut stain)
Stamps: Itty bitty set by unity and simple stories
Satin Ribbon

This is the first time I have used this stamp set and I had a lot of fun creating this card! 

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Happy crafting

Great take on the sketch Petra, this is a beautiful card. Love the carriage image, and the wee pearls really finish it off - perfect. And what a background for the card, need to remember that. Thanks for joining us at SOUS!
