I'm surprised to be blogging today AND after a nice little quiet crafty session in my office. The kids have been playing outside with neighbors for a few hours and I'm almost lost! (ALMOST.) The weather is beeee-u-tiful so I plan to get back outside and do something, even if it's just read. I can't wait.
But I will share a card or two from my session first.
This week's challenge over on the SPARKS blog is a sketch:
After stamping the focal image in CTMH Bamboo ink, I used Hollyhock and Topiary reinkers dipped with a wet Fantastix stick to color in the flowers and leaves. I also dipped the pen onto PTI Hibiscus Burst and Simply Chartreuse inkpads (don't have those reinkers. Hmmmm....a new shopping list!)
I love how the watercolor looks with this image. I stamped the sentiment in Cocoa ink and then used second generation Chocolate ink for the little dots that randomly surround the image. I layered the panel over a scrap piece of patterned paper from remnants of my CTMH Dream Pop paper kit.
I used an already embossed piece of PTI Kraft cardstock for my backdrop because I liked how the floral looking pattern complemented the stamped image.
Enough about that! --- Thanks for stopping by to visit!
