Roses and Lattice

Hi there!!

I am so very sorry to put another challenge card to you all, but I am still on light duties with my neck, incredibly FRUSTRATED and desperately trying to be good (ie not craft/be on the computer too much).

With this sketch from Inkspirations4U....I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to my head at least. This is the sketch we were given....

....and this is what I came up with.....

I went to my technique crypt and found the Lattice Technique compliments of Dawn Griffiths from the US. For a first attempt I don't think it turned out that badly. I also broke out the Scallop Trim Border Punch for the first is soooooooo easy to use. Goes through CS a helluva lot easier than the Eyelet or Scallop Border Punch. I can only sadly use these on DP now, now matter what I sharpen them with, they don't play nice.

Here is a slightly closer view of the latticing.

The Kiwi Kiss is a cut down version of the Scallop Oval Punch. It fits nicely with the Word Window Punch. I also popped the roses up on dimensionals.

Thanks for popping by and I also wanna say a HUGE thank you for all the "hope-your-neck-gets-better-soon" wishes. It still is not playing fair and I am still doing everything I should....sadly with no great rewards...but patience is a virtue right????

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Urban Garden DSP
Ink: (SU) Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy
Stamps: (SU) A Rose is a Rose, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Punches: (SU) Scallop Oval Punch, Word Window Punch, Scallop Trim Punch
Other bits: Dimensionals, Green Kaisercraft Rhinestones

Patience is definitely a virtue! I do hope, hunny, that it won't be too long before you are feeling better. Gorgeous the first time I saw this ... and even better today! You are such a clever little chicken ... aren't you! Hugs xxaxx
