Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge – Forever Begins Today

Stampin' Up! Sketch ChallengeHello Everyone! So glad you could join us for another week of the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! This weeks sketch comes from the lovely Justyna.

Simply Sketched Stampin' Up! Challenge Blog Hop

I love this sketch, it totally pushed me outside of my norm, and allowed me to create something very different for me. I have to admit that I also took inspiration from the ever so talented Teneale Williams for this one, particularly stamping on coloured card stock – definitely something I shall be doing more of!

I of course had to turn the sketch this time. I haven’t rotated a sketch for a while – I love taking a sketch and editing it to suit me. So this time I turn it sideways.

I really don’t use a lot of coloured card stock, I buy heaps of Whisper White but a pack of a colour can last me years! This particular colour I didn’t think was one of my favourites, but now I’ve used it in such a big way it is starting to grow on me. Actually I use so little of this colour (Soft Suede) that when I came to stamp I realised I don’t even have the coordinating Ink! Shocking! So to get the tone on tone effect I jumped to another brown, Crumb Cake instead.

I’ve also used Crumb Cake to stamp and watercolour the Bloom in the circle. Can you believe that that is one ink colour?! its super pretty in real life, my camera work just has not done this one justice. The flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack are also sponged in Crumb Cake.
