Hi everyone! Welcome back.
STAMPlorations has a brand new sketch for you for the next fornight.
I have used a brand new stamp from the Bee's Knees line created by our very own Shirley.
This set is called Rosebuds. It is beautiful.
Here is my DT card -
For my main panel, I used a piece of watercolour paper, smooched my ink pads onto my craft sheet, spritzed them with water and then used a brush to pick up the ink and randomly brush onto my paper. I kept using my heat gun to dry the paper and would add more colour here and there. I dried my paper again and then stamped the rosebuds and coloured them with a brush. The sentiment comes as one whole stamp but I snipped mine in half so I could stamp them before and after the stems.
Once everything was dry (trusty heat gun again), I used an ink spray that was sent to me by my teamie Marina at ATSM. I held it up quite high and sprayed down on the paper so I could get some larger drops instead of a mist.
I added three little raindrops from PTI and die cut a tiny butterfly from some leftover of the watercoloured panel. It's a little bit lost but it is there :) I also added a butterfly to the inside of my card.
I hope you will join us for this challenge. We have a wonderful guest designer -
Leslie - don't forget to pop on over and say hi but here is a little bit about her first -
I started stamping in 2002 after I was sucked into it by a heat-embossing demo at a local craft store while on vacation in Florida. Then I discovered Stampin' Up! and joined "for the discount". I taught classes for 8 years before I resigned, mostly because I was an equal opportunity collector, and I really wanted to use ALL THE STAMPS. One of my customers suggested I start a blog. I joking said, "What would I call it, The Crooked Stamper?", which was an inside joke -- they accused me of not being able to cut parts for my kits straight. She said, "I'd read it." and my life entered Blogland. Then I discovered challenge blogs, and I'm now addicted to challenges. My favorites are sketch challenges.
I'm now retired from the Day Job, and I play in my craft room most days. I also run the Shopping Our Stash challenge blog, and I'm a designer and DT coordinator for A Blog Named Hero.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
