Peet *Day 4*

Here is today's card by Peet: I love all of her elegant layers on this card! The beautiful floral papers look amazing! And the overall design of this card is FAB, too! I just can't get enough of those big scallops and pretty sentiment tag.
Here is my take:

I began by stamping the floral image (Penny Black 3388K Unfold) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The flowers were colored with PrismaColor colored pencils and then cut and and adhered to another pre-stamped piece of white cardstock. I created the background on this cardstock by inking my acrylic block with Broken China, Crushed Olive, and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, spritzing the block with water and then pressing it onto my cardstock. The background of the card base also began as white cardstock. Next, it was inked with Broken China and Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The script (Penny Black 1999L Letter Background) was stamped with Broken China Distress Ink, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The Sentiment banner was lightly distressed with Broken China Distress Ink. Sentiment by Penny Black 30-009 Clearly In Love.

Thanks again for stopping by and for all of your lovely comments! See you tomorrow... it's almost Friday! :)
