Sketch Challenge Week #43

I’m posting Saturday’s sketch challenge on a Monday. Oops! Go over to UDI to view the sketch.

I struggled to get a good picture of this card. Some colors don’t photograph very well in my lighting. Sorry this picture isn’t very good.
Stamp set: Thoughts & Prayers
Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White card stock, Bella Bleu DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron Classic ink
Accessories: Scallop border punch, ¾” and 1” circle punches, 5/8” Chocolate Chip Jumbo brads, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip, Crystal Effects, sponge, Big Shot machine, Texturz Plate Backgrounds 1, paper trimmer

I used the Damask Texturz plate to add texture to the Whisper White card stock. I sponged So Saffron on the textured cardstock to soften the white and to match the card base. The flowers use the fan fold technique (tutorial located here). If you are a visual learner, you will want to view the video tutorial. I believe my paper was cut at ¾” wide before I added the scallop edge for the smallest flower, and 1” wide for the largest flower.

If you would like to participate in the sketch challenge, post a comment and link to your blog, or upload to your Splitcoast gallery using the keyword DivaSC43.

Have fun stampin’ and creatin’!
