Papertrey Posse Challenge #1


Hi there!! It has been awhile for me for uploading anything. I have a few things done but haven't been able to post them yet.
How was everyone's weekend? Our's was pretty busy. On Sunday we went to LAX airport. Not an airport that I like going to. The only thing about going is that you have a greater chance of maybe seeing a celebrity. That was the case on Sunday. We were waiting around for our party to leave and then we spotted a few photographers taking pictures of someone. The photograher was right in front of us and then we noticed this guy trying to fit in with the crowd and he was right there in front of us. It happened to be Channing Tatum (Dear John).
Now on to my card for this challenge. It is a sketch challenge as you can see above. These challenges sure make it easier to get a card done. I wanted to use my YOF: Lily of the Valley and decide I would ink it up for this challenge. I used my Ripe Avacado copic trio to color the leaves and used T1 to shade the flowers. I cut it out with my classic ovals nesties. My DH saw it in the die and said he liked how the color of the die looked with it so I cut the scallop using Kraft CS and used Tea Dye Duo to distress the edge.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by,
Liz

This is awesome. I think I should get started on a card with this sketch as well.
Too bad we didn't know that it was Channing when we saw him.

Channing Tatum? Whoa..maybe I need to flu out there and starting hanging out at LAX.

Great great card! I love the colors and Lily of the Valley is one of my favorites!

Jessica said...

Beautiful card. I haven't used my Lily of the Valley stamp yet, but I really need to. I love the oval and how the ribbon runs across it. I also really like the buttons on the side where the ribbon runs off of the oval. Great job on the sketch!

Diane Jaquay said...

How PRETTY, the flowers look divine!!

Dana said...

LOVE how you used this set Liz. Just gorgeous.

Emm said...

The lily of the valley looks great inside of an oval frame. Hubby had a great idea with the color of the scallop frame! Love your card!

Amy said...

Beautiful card. I wish I was brave enough to take the Copic leap!

Sarah said...

Liz, I really like how you used an oval instead of the circle!
