What's the meaning of today's title, I hear you ask? . . . no? . . . well I'll explain anyway. You may, or may not, have noticed I haven't posted for a few days. This is down to my laptop playing havoc with the internet, it's been like a stubborn toddler, dropping connections, then picking it back up again, only to drop it again once it's lulled me into a false sense of security!!
Anywho, I had better get straight to it while it's having it's afternoon nap and doesn't realise I am trying to get work done.
This post is for Freshly Made Sketches #173 Which is this sketch by Kim.
I also thought I might link it to Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge #2, which is 'Embossing'
I will quickly explain how I did it. First, I masked off a panel to the right of the card and taped a stencil down to the left and used white embossing paste to emboss a border as per the FMS sketch.
Next, I stamped the Lotus Flower image onto a smaller panel and then added the sentiment along the side of that panel - this was my only slight deviation, or different interpretation of the sketch. I finally finished off with a couple of pearls.
All supplies will be listed below the pics. This is my card.
