Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #1

I ran across this new sketch challenge today, while I was blog hopping. Waltzingmouse has a new challenge blog for us to play along on. I had some of the pieces for this card already laying on my desk, begging to be used. If you would like to check out this challenge,
please click here.The card stocks I used are all Pure Luxury form Gina K. Designs. They are the new Grass Green, Rocket Red, and Pure White. My white layer, is embossed with the new Tim Holtz Fade called Bricked. My center was created by layering a large MM red flower, with a section of a stamped medallion from Sweet Impression Stamps. It was stamped on vellum, colored on the reverse side with Copics, scratched to show texture and then cut out using a Pergamano tool. That is how the tattered edge is achieved. I used a scalloped circle punch from SU!, added a button threaded with twine that I colored with Copic. The circle sentiment is an unknown and the flag strip is from a Words To Go, takeout box from K&Co.

Expecting bad storms this afternoon, so I wanted to get this loaded. Hope you are having a crafty weekend!

This is cool - it looks almost like stained glass - with the coloring on the back of the vellum. I really like it!
