It’s another fun Saturday at The Crafty Nurses’ Blog! I sure hope you are making some time for crafting this weekend. Today, for the next Open-Minded Crafting Challenge we are celebrating weddings and anniversaries. Our challenge runs through Friday, May 22nd and as usual, we have some awesome prizes for our randomly chosen winners.
This week our sponsors are:
For this wedding challenge, Fairy Tangles provided me with a gorgeous digital image called, “Forget Me Not.” She looks like a stunning bride from days gone past. I colored her with Copic Markers and used a few different sizes of Lawn Fawn’s rectangle stitched dies. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, “Love Quotes”.
I sure hope you come over to the Open-Minded Crafting Wedding and Anniversary Challenge and show us what inspires you!
Happy Saturday! Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who is offering a very generous $25.00 gift certificate to their store for our random winner. You have until Friday, May 15th for a chance to win.
Here’s the sketch:
For my card I chose a celebration stamp from Simon Says Stamp called, “Happy Every Day.” It’s a great set with lots of fun geometric borders and cute sentiments. For the card I broke out my distress inks and water colored with them. I used the Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick, and Scattered Straw.
The paper pack is from American Crafts, the oval die is My Favorite Things, and the scalloped oval is Spellbinders. The vertical stripes are also a die from My Favorite Things.
