I am a fan of mixing up challenges, so was excited to try this one from Runway Inspired Challenge and CAS(E) this Sketch. I haven't seen Runway Inspired Challenge site before so that was a nice find as well, they take their inspiration images straight from the runway! So on trend for patterns and colours which is a bit fun.
I decided to turn the sketch on it's side as it fit the sentiment better. I have been having some fun recently with the Gold stamp pad, here I have stamped onto Basic Black card stock with both Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamps. I finished off the centre flower with one of the Antique Brads, I haven't used these for ages so it was nice to brush the dust off! The sentiment is from Perfectly Penned and also seemed to fit the vintage feel of this card.
I have taken a second photo so that you can see that I have spritzed the Modern Medley DSP so that it has a shimmer to it, the flowers have also had the shimmer treatment. I found this helped tone down the starkness of the DSP, and tied it into the Brushed Gold layer. I was thinking about adding some colour, but decided against it and kept the monochormatic look.
I have a very special Easter project to share with you, but as I haven't given it away yet I won't post that until Sunday. I will say it is a very different feel to this one with much brighter colours, although it does use the Gold ink again!
