Today is Tuesday, and that means a new ODBD Challenge card to share. This week's challenge is based on a Sketch - and I really had fun with it. I went with a shabby chic look for a change - I so love this style, especially when created by those who have mastered the art of Shabby Chic. Andrea Ewen is one of those people. She is a true master of this style, and I drew inspiration from her on this one.
|Let the Earth Rejoice!!|
I loved the Sketch and decided to change it up just a little by using ribbon to create two 'tails' and keeping the sentiment as part of the focal area. For this project I'd already chosen the Special Blend Label stamp with the verse from Let the Earth Rejoice, along with a special doily from my stash, so the next step was to bring everything together with some fun shabby-chic elements.
First I stamped and delicately cut the Special Blend label, then stamped and cut-out the verse. Then I stamped the background panel with the Fish Background stamp and sponged/distressed all of those layers. At that point I added little dots of white Liquid Pearls around the card and sentiment borders and let everything dry.
I made a bow, added the pretty flower on top, then added a couple of stick pins with pearls and beads to the arrangement. Here's a close-up of the sentiment and flower details:

The last step was to put it all together. Here's a link to Andrea's Blog in case you want to check out her amazing talent! And here's a link to the ODBDSLC #145. Below are pictures of the inspiration Sketch as well as the stamps used for this project:
