Hi everyone!!!!


A card to link at the sketch challenge at the Global Design Challenge Blog!!!!  The sketch:

 and my card:


I did the smooshing with MFT inks and added some very fine paint splatters.
All stamps from PTI.
All stamping was heat embossed.


I was so happy with how this card turned out, I made another one using the same idea:


 Sentiment stamp from Verve.





It's late, I'm off to bed!!!!!
Thanks for the visit and hope to see you again soon!!!!

What gorgeous smooshed backgrounds! I need to get back to using that technique once again! So you noticed my new avatar - lol! It's about time since I've now grown out my bangs and no longer wear glasses all the time (just for reading) since my cataract surgery several years ago. :-)

"Beautiful." That's exactly what your cards are; beautiful. From the smooshing and the fine splattering, to the tulips and sentiments everything is really soft and lovely. The colors are so calming, and I find myself staring at them and enjoying them immensely. Michele F. is right; you should make more of these.... Have a good day. Bev

Super kaartje!

Beautiful CAS cards Petra. Love the smooshed/watercolored background. Looks so soft and almost like you placed every drop with a plan... came together (blended together) so nicely and perfectly. The simple flower images look wonderful.
