Simply Stampin Sketch Week

I decided to use one of my new Stampin' Up stamp sets that I had bought from overseas on ebay. Actually I used two - Painted Posies (two step) and Whimsical Words. (I call them new but one is from 2005!! lol lol) Just goes to show what quality products we have at Stampin' Up!

The challenge was the Simply Stampin Sketch Week which I really enjoyed. The thing I love most about these challenges is that I either get rid of any creative block I have at the time, or I get out of the rut of doing the same old thing. At one stage I was just watercolour, watercolour, watercolour!! I've just ordered some alcohol based markers to try my hand at that too. Can't wait until they arrive!

Anyway, this is the card I came up with from the sketch provided -


When I decided I was going to use this particular stamp set, I decided that I would try the masking effect. Well, I started off all wrong! In the end, I decided to cut out the purple flowers by hand and use dimensionals to get them to pop. I used liquid pearl dimensional paint on the centre of those flowers.

At the end of it all, I was happy with the result. Wasn't the plan I had intended but I guess that's what happens as you go along lol.

Thanks for looking xx

    1. I know, Chrissy! I decided on a less expensive brand than the copics so here's hoping they go ok. I did a bit of research and they certainly got a good review. Hopefully I can learn how to use them and really get creative!
