Wasn't that a fun Mojo Monday yesterday! Thank you for all your kind comments on my sketch! My card today uses one of the new Sale-A-Bration Clear-Mount stamp sets called Happy Moments. Inspiration for the repeat pattern with the flower stamp came from fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Karen Barber. The sketch is based on an OCC (Our Creative Corner) challenge from a couple weeks ago.
- Many of you know that my black ink "of choice" is Jet Black Stazon. However, for this project, I used Stampin' Up! Basic Black since my Jet Black attempt smudged a bit when stamping the stems.
- Watercoloring isn't my forte. However, I opted for what I consider the "illustrative look" (translation = messy and incomplete--but kinda cool) when coloring the cards.
- I used a drop of color from my Stampin' Up! Ink Refills with a Blender Pen to color the blossoms. I used an Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker to color the leaves.
- Need a quick sentiment? Chit Chat Rub-Ons cover most occasions and are easy to apply. An excellent alternative would be Chat Room Rub-Ons from the new Occasions Mini Catalog.
- White Halfback Pearls from the Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit add the perfect touch. One nests happily on the butterfly button. Mini Glue Dots keep them all neatly in place.
- Check out the yummy texture on More Mustard card stock. It's created with my Big Shot and the new Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
- DON'T MISS: Stampin' Up!'s Textured Impressions Folders cover an entire A2 card front. Larger coverage than the Cuttlebug folders I have used!
- Card Size A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2", scored on top).
