AHSC # 157 & Florence!

I've been busy getting ready for a craft fair that was held earlier today so now that the event is over I'm back to play with this week's Atlantic Heart's Sketch Challenge!
And I'm also excited to tell you that the paper and stamp you see here is from the new CTMH Seasonal Expressions catalog that will be available tomorrow!

The floral bouquet cut out is done with one of the Thin Cut die sets. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping and colored with the Shinhan markers. The foil tape and sequins are the new Rose Gold color and the papers are from the new Florence paper collection.

TIP: I don't like the ties on my cards to be bulky so I split the two ply  thick twine and only used one ply.

There's still time to create your own project for this week's challenge, here's the sketch...

Canvas Art # 2

Here is another canvas. I'm much more pleased with this one!
The border of the canvas is painted with gold metallic paint. The scallop border on the left was cut on the Cricut and I love the ribbon rose border next to it.The butterfly body was cut from gold glitter paper and the overlay is the same glossy cardstock as the scallop border.
One of the things I love about creating these projects is I won't be able to make the exact same on twice. The background paper and the ribbon roses were the last of this paper and ribbon.
I hope I'm inspiring you to go create something of your own!
