CPS 113

Yay! I finally got a chance to participate in the weekly sketch at Card Positioning Systems! This week, it is sponsored by Cornish Heritage Farms, and I wanted to make a card using one of their stamps.

For the main image panel, I paired some images from Crafty Secrets' "Fairyland" set with the most used stamp in my craft room: CHF's "Thank You." The sentiment was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged Antique Linen Distress ink on the image panel, then lightly edged it with my gold paint pen.

You can't tell from the photo, but the bird's eggs have a coat of Glossy Accents on them, just for fun. And I scored two lines on one of the center strips of DP, just for fun, and to distinguish it a bit from the lace DP.

This card ended up being 5x7, and it was actually kind of nice to work with the bigger space.

Stamps: Fairyland (Crafty Secrets), Thank You (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Noir (Palette), Antique Linen Distress (Ranger)
Paper: Natural White (Neenah), Mushroom (Royal Resource ), Everafter DP (Cosmo Cricket)
Punches/Dies: Lace Border Punch (Fiskars), Curved Rectangle Nesties (Spellbinders)
Misc: Glossy Accents (Ranger), Copics, foam tape (3M), buttons (my stash), Scor-Pal, ecru embroidery floss, clear EP, Gold deco-color paint pen (Marvy)

Thank you for stopping by!
