Happy Thursday, friends, and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! It's a sketch week and the gals have a really pretty sketch that I think you will like. Let's have a look-see:
The first time I saw this sketch, the scallop framed oval made me think of a cameo. Then I saw this great card which just happened to be created by my fabulous Mom (!) and I was inspired to make this:The colors and vintage patterns of the Twitterpated designer paper seemed like a good companion to the old-fashioned cameo. But wouldn't you know it, I don't own any Twitterpated DSP so you know what I did? That's right...printed it in My Digital Studio! And if you read all the way through today's post, there's a surprise for you at the end! ;-)
I stamped the cameo frame in Blushing Bride ink and the silhouette in Riding Hood Red then ran it through the Big Shot with the oval embossing frame. The edges were sponged in more Blushing Bride and some flowers were added with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.
A Riding Hood Red border was added with the Adorning Accents Edgelit die and the Basic Gray background was stamped with the flourish image from Creative Elements.
You still with me? I hope so because I have something for you...a free tutorial on Full-Page Printing in My Digital Studio! I hope you like it...just follow the link below to download the PDF file.
