Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 87

Boy, has it been a busy week! Both in the 'real' life, as well as here on my bloggie, I somehow managed to do heaps... I've got all the satisfaction, but I feel so sleep deprived at the same time. Even now, I'm sitting here scheduling this post for launch tomorrow, and burning midnight oil like a pro. LOL
It's 1.30am, and I'm seriously tempted to start on tomorrow's stuff before it gets busy again... oi! I hear you scolding me now :)
Anyhow, if you can read this, it means that a new Waltzingmouse sketch is in da house, so let's get cracking!

I channeled my inner Tosh this week (in a very humble way!), and came up with this (almost) monochromatic, and heavily distressed card. It's a "look ma, no patterned paper!" card as well. I know, shocking.


Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Kraft, Fine Linen); stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Text-It, Flourishes - Scallops and Dots, Big Day - Additions, Cameo To Go); ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap, Pumice Stone), Brilliance (Pearlescent Orchid); Nestabilities Ovals/Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Three; Liquid Pearls (Platinum Pearl); lace; pearls: SEI

For the colour inspiration, I followed the new Kathy's Lily Pad Palette challenge:

  6. Hi Chupa, I so agree with what Nancy said and I don't know how you can pump out so many beautiful cards in one week. I guess burning the midnight oil?? Anyway I LOVE, love your card and the lace in the corners sets off your stamping perfectly. Thanks for playing along with Lily Pads color challenge. :)
