Good Morning! The sketch is up at TMS and I am so glad we're revisiting this sketch. Patti picked one of her sketches for us to play with. Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies but I didn't use one their images this time. My printer is acting weird. It's printing like it's almost out of ink but the ink levels aren't low.
So I am playing with technique and a stamp set I treated myself to months ago but just haven't used it yet. The stamp set is by Hero Arts. The technique is an oldie but a goodie - emboss resist. I'm still working on perfecting my ink blending skills, but overall the card is pretty and I think is a great notecard that will only need a single stamp to mail.
I stamped the branch and sentiment with Versa-Mark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used a round ink blending tool to apply 4 colors of Distress Ink. I used a couple of those same colors to stamp the flowers. This is where I changed the sketch a little - the sketch shows the 3 elements as being smaller - I went with them covering that vertical panel. Overall, the card was easy to do, done in about 15 minutes and like I said, will only take one postage stamp to mail.
Please head on over to the TMS blog and see all the inspiration the team is sharing with you - they are fantastic. If I'm not mistaken, looks like Wanda has a different fold on her card.
