Furniture too Expensive, But I Can Make a Card!

Using an inspirational photo and a wonderful sketch, I was able to make a card today.












 My basket stamp on the larger die cut mimics the gorgeous furniture I can't buy right now. ;)


The branch mimics the greenery in the background.


Can you see those pillows? 



The picture is bigger at the link for Crate and Barrel.




They are gorgeous pillows that inspired me to stamp the flowers with Versamark and emboss with white powder.



I colored the bigger flowers with Memento markers.  


You know what I found out?  




If you stamp with Versamark, white emboss and get a little marker on the embossed area when you color...you can wipe that marker right off the embossed area!  



I used a slightly damp baby wipe (it had been sitting out for oopsies and wasn't soaking wet).


You might already know that....but it was NEWS TO ME...GOOD NEWS!  




SIGH...IF ONLY THERE WERE DO-OVERS LIKE THAT IN THE REAL WORLD.



Right?



I used Mojo Monday's 200th sketch






Thank you for stopping in, I really appreciate it. ;)
