Hello! Thank you for stopping by. The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I really love this one. It's so pretty!
My card features an older stamp set from Sweet n Sassy Stamps - Poppies & Greetings. I got my tax refund, which trust me it wasn't much but the bright side of that was I didn't owe! But it was enough to finally purchase markers that I have been wanting for about 2 years now. I have coveted Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush markers and I watch all the You Tube videos when they are featured. So I found them in several places - but Amazon definitely had them for the best price. I got the box of 60 for $70 - on Blitsy, the box of 60 is like $170. Yes, one hundred and seventy. Well, so not in my budget. I may not have needed all these markers but I wanted to make sure I didn't get stuck with brights/primaries only.
Anyway, I'm sure you got bored and just scrolled down. Here's my card.
My card is 4 1/4 square. I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth card stock and blended a red and an orange to get that pretty shade poppies have. I moved the color and blended just using a water brush. I did emboss the image with VersaFine onyx black and clear embossing powder.
I did color around the image with light blue and used the water brush to blend out that color.
Here's the inside view of the card. I watched a video yesterday morning (yep! made my card last minute) for Papertrey Ink - their challenge this week is to put a pattern behind a window. I can't join the challenge because I didn't use anything by Papertrey Ink, but I really liked the idea, so I put my focal point inside the card and cut windows.
Please join us this week. And be sure to visit the team's blogs to leave them much deserved love.
