Waltzing Mouse Sketches

I've not been able to do the last couple of Waltzing Mouse sketches so thought I would catch up on doing them this morning.

This first one is this week's sketch #58, which I combined with Play Date Café's Challenge #92 to use coral, petal pink and ancient gold. I don't have much gold stuff as I don't like the colour, but did find some embossing powder and organza ribbon hidden away in my stash! This is the colour swatch from PDC.

And this is my card for it! Not colours I would choose myself, but I like how it came out!


Stamps: Fancy Flourishes from PTI, Large Doily, Dainty Doilies 2, Holiday Labels #14, Say It With Style all from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Cameo Coral (retired), Blushing Bride, Whisper White all from SU, Patterned Paper from My Mind's Eye

Inks: Cameo Coral (retired), Blushing Bride, Versamark all from SU

Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder from SU, Lace from Cuddly Buddly, Gold Organza Ribbon from stash, Buttons from Elzybells

This next one is sketch #57 from 2 weeks ago which I combined with CC75 to use Sage Shadow, Vintage Violet (which I subbed with Perfect Plum) and Creamy Caramel. It actually turned out to be a nice combo! I took my inspiration from Edna's card for the doilies!

  1. Beautiful embossed flourishes over those cute dots on your pocket card. Love how you used the nestie label and your own lovely doily patterned paper! You work wonders with that doily set, Vannessa!

  2. These are all lovely creations. Lots of creativity! I love your gold embossing coupled with your pink shades. Thanks so much for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge this week.
