Summer Card Class 2 Pre-Class Challenge

I learned so much from participating in the Clean & Simple Online Card Class, that I decided to take the Summer Card Class.  There are two pre-class challenges.  One is a color combination and the other is a sketch.  I decided to combine the two since the class starts tomorrow!

The stamps are all CTMH.  I cut down the large doily so it was more proportional for the card.  I white embossed over vellum then used a brush to watercolor Smoothie, Sky, and Slate ink over top.  I used very little water so my color was fairly bold.

The background vellum is sewn on, and the greeting tag is stapled.  I used a small dab of Liquid Glass on the back of the doilies to adhere them.

I really like how soft and feminine this turned out!  Can't wait to see what new and exciting projects we will have during this three week class.

Until next time,


  1. Very nice the doilies!!

  2. Very jelly of you, taking the summer stamp class! No time in the next two weeks, so I didn't sign up, but I'm going to DROOL over your creations... This first one is so soft and pretty. The stitching and linen-look background just enhance those tinted doilies. Yum.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
