Tuesday Morning Sketches #490

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by. The latest favorite sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this week is Lori's favorite - but if I'm honest, it's another favorite of mine, too.

My card features the new Everyday Bouquet turnabout stamp set from Concord and 9th.  I splurged a bit and treated myself to the toolkit they released earlier this month.  That beautiful box contains some really great stuff!!


I'm still stuck on this blue and gray color palette.  I love it!  The turnabout was stamped with Sea Glass, Surf Blue and Fog inks by Simon Says Stamp and Soft Stone by Papertrey Ink.  I'm writing to SSS about the Sea Glass ink, I'm thinking it's not supposed to be light.  I stamped it 3 times and you still can't see it very well.  The flowers are dies that also came in the toolkit.  I die cut them from white and then used Peacock Feathers and Pumice Stone Oxide inks to colors those.  I had them leftover from a previous project that I was playing with.

I did color a piece of card stock with Surf Blue which is almost the same as Peacock Feathers.  I used that to make the mat piece and the little square element.  I didn't realize until I cut the white piece that it actually cuts a teeny tiny frame so I colored that with Fog ink.

Finally, the banner pieces I cut from scallop border die from Simon Says Stamp and the flag piece is embossed with a die from CC Designs.  The sentiment is from another Concord and 9th stamp set.

I hope you like my card as much as I do!  Please visit us at TMS, the team made some pretty fantastic cards.
