Back again to remind you that there is still time to enter the theme/sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations.
Here is my card which uses the sketch as well as the theme.
I was a little stumped at first by this month's sketch and stared at it for quite awhile before inspiration struck!
I used a NEBUS stamp called Sketched:Tulips, it's one of Shery early one's but gorgeous none the less!
I used some linen effect card for this, as I was going to keep it very CAS and it gave just the right amount of texture. On a rectangular scrap of the same card, I diecut a half circle and then stamped the image a couple of times in Memento London Fog, replacing the semi circle back into the original panel after colouring with Copics. The colours I used were inspired by the challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations.
I looked through my offcuts for a green that I was happy with for my second panel, but in the end I made my own by smooshing a panel of card in some DI spritzed with water.
The top base panel was cut using a CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Rectangle die and the bottom of the panel was made by embossing another previously cut one with an ARTplorations Foiled Again stencil. They make a good substitute for an EF even if it doesn't quite show up in the photo! A matching button from the stash and a greeting banner using text from Balloons and Banners complete.
