Good afternoon folks.
It's time to announce the new sketch and theme challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Here is my card for the DT.
This time our theme is
or you could use this sketch
or even combine the two!
For my card I chose the theme, using my new stash of Dee's Artsy Impressions Frames and Flowers and the birthday stamp from Balloons and Banners.
I absolutely love these small flower stamps from Dee's range, as regular readers will probably tell!
For this card I had an eye on the layout at CASe this Sketch but as I type the deadline has passed :( but hey I think it's a good layout! The colour's are a nod to the challenge over at Colour Throwdown.
I stamped the base panel with the rose stamps from the set, first using the palest of the orange inks on the wrong side of the stamp to give a background to the right side which I stamped with a darker shade of orange. I used my new Memento inks in Morocco, Canteloupe and Tangelo for the blooms and 2nd Impression Teal Zeal and London Fog for the foliage. The dots were added between the blooms with a w/c marker.
Here's a better look at the stamping
For the white side panels I embossed some lines in plain white card then cut a triangular aperture with my new Avery Elle border die. The 'happy' was cut 3 times in black with another AE die and layered up before sticking across the middle.
That's about it from me. Please check out the rest of the fab DT and join in, why don't you?
