Ooo La La


Yesterday i was inspired by the card sketches i saw on Jessi's blog, she is on the design team for Tuesday Morning Sketches and she made a super cute card with one of 4 sketches. I really liked the the sketch she chose, so later in the day i got in the craft room and this is my take of the sketch.

I started first with die cutting a white circle, and i stamped and masked the images. Then i colored them with water colors and added a little red glitter glue to the heart in the Eiffel tower.

I decided to use a kraft cardbase and found some pattern paper. That's when i thought i should have used a cream or kraft circle that the white was a little stark! But since i already stamped and colored it, it was a little too late! lol so i added a little bit of distress ink to the edge and across the white parts, you can;t really see it in the pics, but its there! :)

The sketch has scallops, but i was lazy and didn;t want to get my scallop die out of the binder, so instead i went with white vintage buttons. Last i stamped the sentiment Ooo La La at the bottom right.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
