Lily Pad Cards Challenge - Lucy's Fine Lines

Time for another fun Lily Pad Cards Challenge.  This week Lucy is providing a lovely sketch.  Our wonderful sponsor is Penny Black!

Here is my interpretation of Lucy's sweet sketch:

  1. Cut black cardstock form card base. .
  2. Cut layer of beautiful embossed paper Penny Black hearts white. Distress edges and sponge with Memento Rose Bud dye ink. 
  3. StampPenny Black - perfect pair on white cardstock using Black archival ink. 
  4. Spray Tattered Angels glimmer mist on Craft mat. Pull bottom half of paper through gilimmer mist to add pink color. Wait to dry and sponge any additional pink ink to finish the pink on the background behind the birds.
  5. Stamp sentiments using glimmer mist. Spray glimmer mist on craft mat and ink up stamps and stamp onto cardstock. 

All the details of the challenge are at the Lily Pad Cards Blog
