Tuesday Morning Sketches #469

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit and I hope that you leave me a few words so let me know you were here.

The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one - a little tricky but not too bad.  My card features stamps and papers from the August Simon Says Stamp kit.  I finally got to play with and didn't stop.  I'm sharing more cards that I made with stamp set tomorrow.

Instead of a square, I went with the circular floral image.  I stamped it with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.    I colored the image using Spectrum Noir Colorista Aqua pencils.  I have to say, I'm glad I got these on clearance because I'm not sure I like them very much.

The white panel I white heat embossed the background stamp that came in the kit and then lightly brushed on Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink.  And I do mean lightly.  You can barely see the pink.  The turquoise paper came in the kit.  Oh, and I did mask off the image so that I can stamp that bit of pattern into the ring part of the frame.  I used a new to me ink by Kelly Purkey.  Unfortunately, the ink cubes don't tell what the color names are.  My scalloped border is a die from Simon Says Stamp.  I finished it off with some drops of Nuvo Drops - Bubblegum Pink which came in the kit and Caribbean Ocean.

Look at that shine on the embossing!  So beautiful!  The gold embossing power is by Stampendous, the white panel was embossed with Glacier White by Nuvo and I have no idea what brand my clear embossing powder is.

I hope you like the card and that'll you join us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this challenge.  Please be sure to visit the design team blogs, too.  They deserve your kind words.


Have a great day!
