Thistle Garden

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

This week is IMPRESSION OBSESSION WEEK at Stamper's Dream!!! I have the pleasure of showing you the new Thistle Garden image.  I had fun playing with this image I actually made two different cards!!!

My first card was inspired by this weeks SFYTT Sketch and the colors are from this weeks Color Curtain Act #23 - using Kraft, Pretty in Pink and Black. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. I added some *faux stitching* on the edges of the DP. At last I added the Silver Pearls, the Black Satin Ribbon and the Sparkly Flowers.


The second card was designed after the Mojo132 Sketch and the colors are again from the Color Curtain Act#23. The image was again inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. The second white layer was embossed with the Elegant Bouquet Texture Die. I finished the card off with some Black Checker Ribbon and some Silver Pearls.


Please stop by Tosh, Michelle, Cammie and Amy for more fabulous IO creations!!! If you haven't had a chance to follow along please stop by this post right HERE!!!
