Atlantic Hearts #156

Here's an entry for Atlantic Hearts Challenge # 156:

Here's their sketch:

I flipped the sketch on it's head, which was an accident, though I'm pleased with the way it turned out.  I make some pretty random cards... this is a nice conservative card!

  • The flowers were cut with Tattered Florals Sizzix dies out of DCWV paper
  • The strip in the center is inked with Stormy Sky DI, then sprayed with water to smooth out
  • The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp received last fall from that sweetie Autumn of Sew-Paper-Paint.  I inked it with Sand and popped it up
  • I spritzed some pink Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist onto the card base, and also scored some parallel lines for the ribbon component of the sketch


  1. I love your take of the sketch. The scored lines really work to pull the eye to your popped sentiment. Love the color wash behind those 'map'flowers. Creative and lovely card. Thanks for linking to AHSC!

  2. Very pretty! Love those flowers! Thanks so much for playing along at Atlantic hearts!

  3. What a lovely card! The flowers are just so delicate and pretty. TY for playing with us at AHSC this week. :) ~ Ali (ASHC DT)

  5. Your style ranges from CAS to mixed media heavily decorated, you're a bit all over the place (like me perhaps) but I can always spot a bit of Mimi in your creations, your style is quite unique because you're so playful and daring using your stash...

  6. Love the subtleness of this card! Soft and soothing! Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC)!
