Tuesday Morning Sketches #598

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciated your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's...  a little challenging, but not too hard. 

My card features the latest Mini Delight from Altenew called Bloom Smile.  This little layered flower is so pretty.  This inspiration for this card is actually a vinyl sticker that I have on my wall calendar.  The colors are spot on.

So I did generational stamping on this card.  I used Kelly Purkey inks. These inks don't have name colors on them, but they match that vinyl sticker very well.  My card also uses a sentiment stamp from the CTMH set called Everyday Magic, also some little images.  I added the scallops from the same set.  Honestly, they'd be better left off, but that was the sketch.  I did make two additional cards and left them off, and if I'm honest again, I felt like something was missing.  So.....  

Anyway, I really wanted colored card stock but didn't have the right color.  So what do we stampers do?  We make it.  I used Carved Pumpkin Oxide ink to color the card base and I loved the results.

Please head on over to the TMS blog to join the fun and leave the team some love.  Thanks again for your visit.

Beautiful stamping of the flowers, Melissa. And so inventive to colour the backing papers yourself.

Love the stamping on your card. Very pretty. I like the scallops.
Did you color the whole front with the orange or just around the outside? That's what I usually do. Why waste ink?! Hugs, Debi
