STAMPlorations Sketch #13

Hi everyone!

Second day of winter here. It got a little coolish overnight but I can't complain - still in a t-shirt and bare feet. Love our weather!! lol

 I am so happy to be back designing for STAMPlorations after my big holiday overseas. Shery is the best boss and let me take annual leave! Thanks Shery!

Over at STAMPlorations, we have a sketch for you which you have a fortnight to play with.

Here is my DT card -

I have used another technique new to me. Can you guess what the colourful panel is? It is foil! I glued a piece of household foil to a piece of cardstock, embossed it with my Vintage Wallpaper folder, covered it with gesso, dripped alcohol inks over the top, blended black ink over the top and then sanded it down a little. I found this technique on Pinterest (via Vicki). It is pretty cool! You can watch it HERE on youtube.

The flower die is a new one (I have actually just purchased a number of new dies and can't wait to share the rest of them with you!). It is from Memory Box and called Tilth Floral. I have 3 die cuts on there. The little gem is from a packet I bought in Spain.

We are also very lucky to have a Guest Designer! Monika has made a beautiful card for you to drool over!

The gorgeous little sentiment is from the STAMPlorations Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Squares set.

I hope you will play along this fortnight with our sketch!! There are prizes to be won for the month of June -
