STAMPlorations Sketch #13


Sketch time at STAMPlorations, folks!  I did a partial stencil print for my background on the panel, then stamped some leaves from Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes, stamped some flower circles from the same set and punched them out with a one-inch circle punch and popped them up on foam dots.  I added some card candi from Craftwork Cards.  The sentiment is from Sentiment Builders: Happy.  The basecard was a rescue:  I'd swiped Festive Berries and Seedless Preserves Distress Stains over the card and decided I didn't like it, and it had been waiting around for inspiration.  So I sponged Picked Raspberry over it.  I'm getting to like pink.  Here's the sketch.  I stuck pretty close to it this time.


Pop over to the STAMPlorations blog to check out what my teamies and our guest designer, Monika from Stamping with a Vengeance, have created, and join in the fun :)  As always, there are prizes on offer for our sketch challenges - and if you enter both sketch challenges for June and the monthly challenge (starts Friday) you'll be in with a chance of winning these fabulous Tim Holtz stencils!


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Less Is More: more than one stamp (6 in my case)


Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Just Add Ink: Just Add Watercolour (Tim's watercolour stencil technique for me).

  3. Great use of the Retro shapes again. And I could eat that BG panel. I just love those colors together (have I already told you my three bridesmaids each wore raw silk dresses in one of those colors.)
