Hello there! It's finally the weekend yay! It's been such a gloomy week. I hope this rain goes away next week. I haven't been feeling very well. I think I might have carpal tunnel syndrome. My left hand has been hurting for days. I have yet to see my doctor to figure out what's wrong. There's pain on the back of my hand that shoots up my arm. I know that carpal tunnel syndrome has numbness as one of it's symptoms but so far I haven't had those.
It's also going to be a busy weekend. I have to help a friend with a baby shower and there's an upcoming release next week that I have to make cards for. Whew! I'm just hoping it all goes smoothly and I get everything done in time.
So, here we go. It's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 117. This one is from Kelly! Enjoy!
Here's my submission for this week's sketch. I followed the sketch quite loosely. Instead of a label, I chose to use a star and some Christmas images for my card. I used Seasons of Love - Tags for the star. I stamped it with Aqua Mist ink then I applied some glitter on it.
The sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas. I stamped it in red then stamped it again in Ocean Tides. Then layered the Ocean Tides strip over the red image. I also put some glitter on the edges of the tag.
In the sketch, there were 3 flowers on the bottom of the label. Instead of using flowers, I adhered these cute little charms behind the star and have them hanging from it.
For the background, I stamped the Dainty Dolies - Large in gray. I used Colorbox chalk ink on it. I'm a little disappointed with the quality of the ink though. I have always loved Colorbox because I always get good results from it. Not with this color though. I'm not sure why. Can you recommend a good light gray ink for me please? I would really appreciate it.
The little Ocean tides images in the doilies are also from Very Vintage Christmas.
There you have it! I hope that gave you a little kick start of inspiration to join us this week in Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 117. Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you again on Monday for the release I was telling you about. ;)
