Prickley Pear Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday! We are having a wintery morning here in Värmland, Sweden. I’m really happy, even though it’s not more than a thin, thin layer of powdery white covering the ground. Better than nothing! :)

A lot of stuff is going on over at Prickley Pear. A new release of fabbie new red rubber is celebrated by a three day blog hop. If you want a chance to win – check it out HERE! And if you look for my blog hop post – it’s HERE!

And today a new sketch challenge is launched. This is a new favorite sketch, so much fun to work with!

And here is my take:

Love skiss 1

I went with a Valentines theme using the beautiful Heart Key Crown Clear Stamps Set and the Heart Key Crown Die.

Love skiss 2

I worked with layers of the die and stamps and stitched them down on the card. The hearts are stamped and clear embossed. The white hearts are stamped with clear embossing ink and then clear embossed and after that inked with the pink Versa Fine ink. Love embossed resist!

Love skiss 3

The LOVE is stamped with Love stamp and then cut out and mounted on 3D foam.

You HAVE to go check the Design Team creations out – they are AMAZING and shows just how fun and versatile this sketch is. You find them HERE on the Prickley Pear Blog.

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Tesa, this is stunning. I just love the way you stitched and hearts and layered the diecut hearts.

Cheryl said...

The layer of hearts stitched down is so pretty, and I love that it's 3-d, but for mailing it would lay flat. Fab dp's, and that hint of green matting is perfect--almost not noticeable, but I can tell, without it, it wouldn't be nearly as pretty. Your card is magnificent! ~Hugs, Cheryl
