Card of the Day

Hello Stampers! I took some time today to catch up on a few challenges. It has been forever since I did a challenge and it felt good to do one. Although, how did I make such a mess making one card? I tried a technique I had seen before but I can't really remember how it was done. I embossed the flower image from doodle this on vellum and then turned it over and colored with markers on the back side. It really doesn't show up in the photo. Oh well, it was still fun to try. This card is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge number 46 and for the splitcoast color challenge number 164 using soft sky, purely pomegrante, and black.

I also discovered something else tonight. My ticket corner had stopped working recently and I read somewhere on splitcoast about applying sewing machine oil to the punches when they stopped working to "lube" them up. I didn't have any oil but I found some glycerine in my drawer and I applied some of that with a small paint brush and my punch is now working again! I am so happy because it was one of my favorites.

Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for sharing! Love how you used the corner punches and layered punches for your sentiment. The flower looks great too.
