Technostamper Challenge #20 - Time Well Spent


Here is Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge; oops, it's Tuesday already? Yikes, time is flying by!

On the left is the sketch that Mary Jo sent, a nice simple square card with lots of possibilities. Very usable sketch, MJ!

Here's my card:

The delicious Summer Picnic Designer Paper is used on the background and the large flower from Time Well Spent is the focal point. The flower was stamped on Real Red cardstock then the border on the edge was colored with a Real Red Marker to darken it. I punched out all the circles on the flower with my 1/8" circle punch and adhered a Bashful Blue scallop punch behind it. I cut out one of the celery flowers from the paper and layered it on a 3/4" circle punched from blue and stacked this on the flower center with a Dimensional.

For the wavy design, the rolling cutter from the Cutter Kit was used to cut through my DP, then layered a piece of the stripe DP, which is the reverse side of the flower paper. Touches of Dazzling Diamonds glitter add a little zest to the card, as does the red grosgrain ribbon which has a touch of blue added with my Bashful Blue marker.

The Lots of Dots jumbo wheel was wheeled in Real Red across the bottom of the red card for some visual texture. Card size is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square.

Stamps: Time Well Spent, Lots of Dots jumbo wheel
Inks: Real Red, Real Red Marker
Paper: Summer Picnic DP, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery cs
Accessories: Dimensionals, Red brad from Bold Brights Asst., 1/8" and 3/4" circle punches, Scallop punch, Red striped grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, glue pen.
