CTS#181

Hi everyone!!!


Made a card last night to link at the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge!!!!  The sketch:


 and my card:



Used my Tim Holtz chevron die to cut a stencil.
Sentiment stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Added some dots with a white gel pen.



I made another card, using a different sentiment:



Sentiment stamp from PTI.

The sponging I've done with Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade DIs.   I've seen a card by the talented Loll Thompson, on her blog, Stamping with Loll, where she had used these two colours together and I loved it!!!  So credit for the colours I have worked with, goes to Loll - thanks Loll!!!


That's it for now!!!  Thanks for popping in - your visits and  comments are appreciated so much!!!

Simply stunning and stunningly simple Petra dear friend! Have a wonderful day! I'm off to meet up with the lovely Darnell Knauss today ... I'm really excited, I've never met one of my 'blogging buddies IRL before'. I'd be over the moon to meet you (perhaps one day eh?) Hazel xx

Hoi Petra,
Wat heb je een weer een supermooi kaart gemaakt. Vellum geeft altijd een mooi effect op een kaart.
De teksten in zwart vallen mooi op, en het is een heel goed gebruik van de sketch.
Groetjes,
GerJanne

Often times the simplest sketches can be the most difficult, Petra - I LOve how you've created your own stencil, and took your cue from a blogging friend for color combinations ... Loll will love that, too. Awesome cards! Thanks for playing cards with CTS this week! xx

Fabulous cards Petra, perfect sponging, I so can't do it no matter how much I try. The vellum is perfect for these cards so we don't miss this gorgeous chevron pattern, hope you are well xx

I love your CAS take with this amazing border. I have it too, but would never have thought to use it in this way. Brilliant! Big hugs, Autumn

Petra, it's simple beautiful and I love the bellum overlay! Great idea and design sweet girl! Looks beautiful out in SA!

Pat said...

You are right about the colour combination Petra, so fiery and hot and the white chevrons stand out beautifully and I love the large sentiments and the way you have stapled the vellum to the card. x

Petra, this is GORGEOUS! I LOVE the bold colors you used! Super fun! Thank you for all the kind comments--they have been keeping me going, friend. Sending HUGS! :) Mynn xx

This is one of the prettiest cards I've seen using this chevron die. Loved the colors (Loll is a terrific inspiration!) and liked the extra dots decorating the patterns. Looks wonderful with the vellum overlay sentiments, and while I like both, my fav must be #2 - as I love calligraphy fonts. TFS & Hugs.

Angie said...

Petra, I love the stenciled layers. That is a really cool stencil! The sentiments on velum look fabulous!!! I stamped on vellum yesterday and loved how it looked but it didn't work with my project so I need to search for a new project!!! :)

Geri said...

WOW! Now this is exactly what 'being creative' is all about! Totally admire your resourcefulness in creating your own stencil. Gorgeous shading! The velum with the embossed sentiments ROCKS!!! I am so calling WINNER, WINNER with these beauties!!!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Hello, Petra! These are so pretty! I LOVE these colours - especially the second card! I will have to remember these colour combos and try them! Beautiful stencil inking and I love the vellum sentiment overlays!

Wanda Cullen said...

Wat een mooie warme kleuren die twee inkten bij elkaar Petra, prachtig. Heel leuk om de sketch op deze manier uit te werken, de gestempelde tekst op het vellum komt heel mooi uit.
Lieve groetjes Miranda
