Hello all!!! Wow two posts in two days! Well, over on the Creative Sketches blog it's Thursday and time for another sketch!
The sketch this week made me stop and think for a minute and I wasn't quite sure what I was I going to do! But once I looked at my dsp and thought of the new stamps I wanted to ink up, it just fell into place from there! Don't you just love it when that happens?? :)
The card base is Whisper White, layered with Poppy Parade and a piece from the Pocket Full of Posies dsp. Now, I have to admit when I first looked at this dsp in our pre-order period, I wasn't all that thrilled. I mean I like retro and funky, but this seemed even a little funky for me! But, I ordered to give it a try and I have to say I am glad that I did. I've been cutting into it like crazy!
The center panel is Pear Pizzazz layered with WW. I stamped the pear from one of the new hostess exclusive sets, Faith in Nature. I used black staz on and then watercolored with the different stamp pad lids. I really like how my pear turned out! Not sure how much you can see, but I spritzed it with my Soft Suede marker after. The sentiment is stamped in Poppy And a piece of linen thread is also wrapped around it.
The double ribbon strips are punched from So Saffron and then pearls are attached. The entire center panel is is up on dimensionals.
