Happy Saturday and welcome to my weekly post for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Today's fun design is by Tosha Leyendekker. This sketch is a great way to show case your favorite Waltzingmouse image, or stamp a one of a kind background. I just got a few of the new releases that I ordered and couldn't wait to get some ink kissed on to them. I was originally going to go all blue - all boy on this one but I was inspired by a recent post from Deborah Frings called Surfer Girl. Her card got me day dreaming about a tropical Paradise complete with fun in the sun and exotic flowers.
The background paper is blush stamped with angel pink ink. Here is a close up so you can see the soft background..I used burlap material and a cotton lace to add extra texture. The button thread is from Waltzingmouse. I was surprised how soft it is compared to other brands I've tried. It is 100% Jute, but it felt like lambs wool to me. I added a tropical flower and a little sterling silver charm I picked out in the jewelry department at department store. This is my way of adding a small gift on to a card so the recipient can simply un-tie it and add it to a charm bracelet or a necklace.
Thanks so much for having a look! I hope this one got you daydreaming a little too! Have a great week - I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
