Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #7

Well this week is different from last week when I had something to show you nearly everyday. Whilst I have been creating, it's been for some upcoming classes and kits that I'm preparing. And I've had a great time doing this, so I will def. share it all sometime soon.
I'm just getting in on time for Makeesha's sketch challenge for this week. I LOVE the sketch that she has provided for us. Though I have to say that I was entirely happy with the first card I made, so I went on to make a second. I think it was how the colours came out! Anyway, here is the sketch we had to use:
This is my first creations. I've used 5th Ave Floral with the watercolour technique for the rose. You can view my previous post as to how I achieved this.
I've layered the pieces of cardstock and DP as per sketch using Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla & White along with DP from Candy Lane. I think it was the Vanilla that threw the colour out of balance, but this card actually looks better in real life. I've used a Flower Designer brad for the top of tag with some vanilla tafetta. I've also used another piece of vanilla tafetta down the bottom. The sentiment is from Best Yet hostess set and I've used the punches to layer it on the card.
Here's a close up of the rose. It's such a pretty technique and each time you do this technique, you end up with a different result!

My next card was a little bit more simple. I've used the Good Friend stamp set. The cardstock colours are Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White; which co-ordinate perfectly with the Rasberry Tart DP.
I've used my glue pen and glitter and a clear gem to make the flowers sparkle. I've also used the scallop edge punch, mat pack and some grosgrain pink ribbon.

And here's a close up of those sparkly flowers.

I will def. be saving this sketch to my favourites - it's a fun one to do. And I would love to use it for a scrapbook page! But I'll save that for next time....
