Nicola's sketch #5

Finally I'm back!!!! It sure feels good to be making cards again :). My vacation was very refreshing! Here's my first card after the vacation and it's inspired from Nicola's Sketch #5. I dunno if it was the big break or if it's just me, but it took me a really long time to decide what colors I wanted to choose. Not that earlier I was fast, but this time I think it took me longer to decide what colors would be there on the card than it took me to make the card!
This is also my first card using the OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirit) technique. Let me tell you something - the OMS technique ain't a piece of cake it looks like! When I used to look at others' creations using OMS, I would wish to myself "Oh! When would I get to try my hands on it". When I did, I realised I totally sucked at it! Hmm...I need to practice a lot. Another thing about this card - there's no PP!
  • CS: DCWV
  • Stamp: Michaels' dollar bin
  • Scallop scissors, OMS.
