WMSC 9


I wasn't really feeling the flowers theme in this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge No. 9, so instead I went for a slightly medieval influenced motif. The sketch provided was:




I took some pebbly textured silver yogurt lids and backed them with cardstock, then ran them through my Cuttlebug to die cut and emboss. Then I pounced them with Wild Plum and Cranberry Adirondack Alcohol Inks and hot-fixed Swarovski crystals. 




A number of Waltzingmouse Stamps (the frame, the sentiment, and an isolated part of the Victorian Frippery Border for the corner motifs) complete the card.
