So now onto my card. This time I have done a twisted easel card with stamps forom the Sheena Douglass little bit sketchy range.
The design papers are from K & co - a pad that I have had for ages and I don't remember the name so I'm sorry about that. I backed it all onto kraft card and distressed the edges.
here. I also used a Martha Stewart lace edger punch. Finally the flowers were made with a nestie shape - I cut six for each flower and then spritzed with water and then crumpled them up. I then flattened them out and punched a hole in the middle. I then put a brad through and squished it all up again. I then gently teased the petals open and lightly squashed with the flat of my hand. To finish I brushed a vintage photo ink pad over the flowers.
I hope you like this card and it tempts you to join in the challenge. Once again I'm sorry the post is late.
