Well last week’s Merry Monday came and went and I didn’t get around to making a card for it :( But the week before that LeAnne chose me as her top pick :) Thanks LeAnne.
Here is this weeks Merry Monday sketch.
I used the Tidings of Joy stamp set again for this week’s sketch but in a way that makes it look totally different. I hope you’ll leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best.
I had seen some beautiful copic cards just using greys and I really wanted to give it a try with this stamp. These are warm greys and they actually matched better with soft suede and espresso than they did with grey. Kind of a sepia look I guess.
The ribbon is crumb cake seam binding and it looks much better IRL as it just kind of blends in with the dsp behind it while still noticing the nice sheen it has. In the photo it looks completely different and much more dominating than it really is unfortunately. You’ll have to trust me ;).
Stamps : Tidings of Joy, Four the holidays
Card : espresso, suede, x-press it, mocha morning dsp
Ink : memento black, versamark, espresso
Other : clear embossing powder, crumb cake seam binding, copics
I was really happy with how this card turned out and I finally found a use for that dsp too. (I love the look of it but I just haven’t been able to use it much?) I think it will make beautiful Christmas cards :)
