Old Fashion Lilac's

I am doing a sketch challenge from another blog Poetic Artistry . This is my card that I created for this challenge. I love how it turned out. I really love things that are old fashioned and this paper is old fashioned to me.

Designer Paper used is (retired) Recollections

Stamp Set used is Blossoms Abound, my good friend Susan gave me this set, Thank You Susan.

Card Stock is Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and main card is Whisper White although you can't see it as it is covered with the designer paper.

Ink used is Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive

Choc. Chip Marker

Square Punches sizes 1 3/8, 1 1/4

I cut my designer paper to 4 1/4x 5 1/2 layered onto the White main card.

With the 1 3/8" Punch punch out 1 Burgundy pieces, with the 1 1/4 punch cut out 1 Mellow Moss pieces.

Layer these two pieces together Burgundy on bottom and Mellow Moss on top. Add stitching lines to the Mellow Moss with your Choc. Chip Marker.

With Burgundy cut a piece 2 3/4"x 2" and one cut at 2"x4".

With a small piece of designer paper cut 1 9/16 x 1 13/16

Layer this on the 2 3/4x 2 piece of Burgundy

Cut Very Vanilla Piece at 1 3/4 x 3 14/16. With Bravo Burgundy Ink pad and Blossoms Abound Lilac under piece stamp off once you have inked it then onto the Very Vanilla, this will give you a lighter color on the under part of the Lilac, next take the top part of the Lilac and stamp over the top of your lower part of your Lilac. This give it that two toned effect.

With Old Olive and the Leaf Vein stamp, stamp on Very Vanilla at the top part of the Lilac. Then take the leaves and stamp off once before adding to your leaf vein. Again the two toned effect. Layer this piece on the Bravo Burgundy.

Now grab the main card with the designer paper on it and take the Punched Out Square and Cut in half, this will give you both sides. Layer this one your card centered both ways from the side and top and bottom. Layer the 2 3/4x2 piece with the designer paper over that so that the points on the squares stick out from underneath. Then the piece you just stamped with the Lilac on it layer this over the top of your piece you just put down. I used pop dots for this piece so it stood out more. And that is it your card is done.

Here is the sketch for you to make one yourself. I hope you join Julee and I and make one also. Please share when you do.
