Tuesday Morning Sketches #451

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's a lot of fun, with lots of elements that are open to interpretation.

My card features stamps from the May 2018 Simon Says Stamp kit.  I wasn't really sure that I was going to buy this one, but I'm sort of glad I did.  And if you know me, then you know bright colors are not my forte but I didn't do half bad!  Okay, so I forgot an element to my card, but I like it anyway...

The card base is an old In-Color color called Razzleberry.  My intent was to keep this card a one layer card, well, a two layer card.  I embossed the oval shape in the center and then masked it off.  I stamped the flowers from the set in bright colors, using the biggest flowers as the corner elements of the sketch.  I stamped the sentiment using SSS Wisteria ink and then I over-stamped that with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I double stamped the Wisteria so it came it really dark and in the photo it actually looks black.  I did embellish with some Nuvo Drops. 

Now be sure to go visit the design team blogs, too.  They made some really awesome cards.


I'll see you over at the TMS blog.

So pretty! The flowers in the BG you created provide the elements. I like how you embossed and masked for the sentiment!

I don't think you can say bright colors are not your forte any longer!! It just seems whatever you do Melissa you pull it off beautifully and this card is no exception!
