WMS #42

I love WMS sketch challenges!! Somehow their sketches always manage to motivate me! Here’s the sketch for this week’s challenge.


This time I must say I’ve my own interpretation of the sketch. I always look at the sketch when the challenge is posted and then make the card based on what I remember of the sketch or how it inspired me.

I’d to make a wedding card for a relative and Indian weddings are all about bright colors and glitter (in the form of rhinestones, sequins or the more expensive diamond and gold). So that was my second inspiration for this card.


I stamped the round frames from Inkadinkado stamps in Bamboo and Dark green inks. Then I (masked and) stamped the flower from Jolies Fleurs. Colored the flowers using prismacolor pencils and OMS. It was after a long long time that I was coloring a card Smile. Glued a rhinestone on the centers of the flowers. Cut the label using Cricut and SCAL. Stamped the sentiment from Flourished Words in Tuxedo black. Outlined the frames with Diamond stickles. Here’s a better view of the bling:


  • Paper: PTI white and Orange zest
  • Stamps: Inkadinkado Rounded Frames Clear stamp set, Lizzie Anne Designs Jolies Fleurs, Flourishes Flourished Words
  • Others: Rhinestone, Diamond stickles, Prismacolor pencils, OMS, Cricut, SCAL.
