Just for You from the Porch

I am so excited to make a card using one of the images from the stamp set 'On The Porch' which was a new release last month at Flourishes. I am especially happy because it was a set that I won! I love their beautiful images which are great for colouring and they stamp perfectly.

Yesterday's Noon Time Challenge for the July release was to create a card with part of it 'popped up'. I popped the whole image on this card with foam tape (it's hard to see in the photo). I used this week's sketch 'rs#15' at 'retrosketches'. I also tried to speed things up at bit by trying to make quick decisions re: sketch, papers, embellishments. This was a real challenge for me since every step along the way to making a card usually takes me an age. I'm not 100% happy with this card but that's OK.


Paper - Beau Chateau (SU), Neena Classic Crest Solar White (for image), White and gold CS (Bazzill)
Stamps - On the Porch (Flourishes), Say it With Style (Waltzing Mouse)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories - 1 1/2" silk ribbon (May Arts), sparkle flourishes (CTMH)
Other - Labels Eight (Spellbinders), Bow Easy, 3D foam tape
