Wednesday Sketch Challenge Vintage Vogue

When I saw this sketch I was thrilled. LOTS of layers. Just what I LOVE to do! And I even added a few more by doing the flowers and the oval wording! I just never know when to quit!!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this sketch. This was not what I had in mind. As I was looking through my stamps I thought I'd give the new "Vintage Vogue" set by Stampin' Up! a try. I was informed by a fellow stamper on Monday that I had the set. Here I thought it was on back order and I was waiting patiently for it to come in. Now I have to go look at what is really on back order! LOL

So onto this card. Firs I cut the Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry at the same time so they would line up when I put the two colors together. I used the new "Very Vintage" jumbo wheel on both of them. Then I sponged the edges. But that just wasn't enough for me so I took the long stamp from the "Vintage Vogue" set and stamped on the edges. Now I was pleased with those pieces.

Next I had to decide what color to make the #4 piece. I ended up going with Basic Gray and I was glad I did. Oh and of course I had to sponge the edges on that piece too.

The focal piece (#5) I knew I wanted it to be Very Vanilla. I used the stamp from the "Vintage Vogue" set all over it and then again sponged the edges. I was on a roll with the sponging and any piece I added would now need to be sponged or it would look out of place. Fortunately for me I like to sponge!

I stamped the flowers and sponged the edges of them after I cut them out. And the same with the leaves. I used the rhinestone brads for the flower centers and set them in place using Dimensionals. I'm thinking a pop up glue dot might have been a better choice. I can see the Dimesnional between the leaves. I stamped some leaves, cut them out and sponged them. I taped them in place under the flowers. And I set all three flowers on top of the card. The center looked so open so I thought I might cut more flowers but then I thought some small words would be perfect in there.

I did struggle with the color for that center piece. I was going to go with Old Olive. I thought it would tie that color into the design a bit more but it was just too much. SO I went with the Rich Razzleberry and I liked the final outcome.

It's been a long time since I've done a Sketch Challenge card that I actually liked and was happy with it when I was done! Now I don't want to give it away!!! LOL

If you have time try this card layout, it's a lot of fun. And head on over to SplitCoastStampers to see what other stampers came up with using this card sketch! I LOVE seeing what was made. It's amazing at all the talent out there!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love your card, Wanda. I like the challenge - but I do not sponge often! Looks so nice on your cards; guess that I am going to have to tackle that technique somehow. LOL.

Thanks for sharing this with us.
