For this week's WTUI challenge from Michelle ~ Make It Monumental
And, always short of time, I've combined it with Lois' challenge to the CCEE Stampers to use an odd number of the same embellishment on our cards. 1 is odd, yes?
I used Dina's Sanded Pencil Background on watercolour paper to create my background - I thought the gritty texture it gives would work for Michelle's challenge. I used grey, brown and silver pencils.Then I stamped the SA sentiments and the Flourishes vine. I embossed it with the TH brick wall ef, and coloured the vine with distress inks. I added one punched butterfly and one black half-pearl.

The way you added your flowers to enhance your sentiment is sheer perfection, Sabrina! Your bg turned out lovely and reminds me of misting, a very gentle type rain. It's the kind I don't mind walking in, and when our dgs's were visiting, we did just that one evening. Your sponging draws the eye inward-good thought~

Wow, Sabrina...another addition to my favs. This is just gorgeous. I can't wait to try this technique. It looks like a stone plaque. The sentiment is perfect and your colors are beautiful. It would be such a pretty piece of art to hang on the wall. Just stunning.
