I had the supreme honor of being asked to participate as a guest designer for the OCC (Our Creative Corner) sketch this weekend. Laurie is in charge of the challenges this month, and designed a sketch for the group to work with.
Here's my take on the sketch.
I used this gorgeous cross by Verve from the Easter Elegance set. I stamped it with Colorbox Chalk inks and embossed it with Detailed Clear ep. I then added a Chocolate Pearl (Kaisercraft) to the center.
The ovals, heart, flourishes and tag were all cut with Nestabilities and Shapes dies from Spellbinders, and the corner was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. The bottom border was done with Fiskars, and the flower is made with a Martha Stewart Flower punch.
Finally, I sewed around the edges, ink distressed them with Aged Mahogany and Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink), and added a dew drop and ribbon to the tag.
Thanks so much for asking me to play along Laurie. I'm honored.
