Hi there stampers! I had a chance to Play in Paradise this week, it's a sketch challenge and you know I love me my sketches! I pulled out a stamp that I just love, it's a wood mounted single by Penny Black called Mixed Media. I've used this stamp three times, which given the number of stamps I have makes it one of my favorites. It's just so pretty!
I started with a kraft base, 5 1/4" square, and I embossed it with Swiss Dots and edged it with Tattered Rose distress ink. I stamped the image twice on a sheet of faux watercoloured Basic Grey designer paper from my long forgotton "Porcelain" pack, and coloured the flowers with Copic Markers (R81, R85, R89, YG17)and then cut them out of the second sheet to pop them up for a little more focus and dimension. I inked the edges with Tattered Rose as well. The frame is Spellbinder's Lacey Square...I just love how dainty it is!The sketch called for embelllishments along the right, and I tried a number of things before settling on this gorgeous Prima pearl florish...aren't those little tiny roses adorable??? The pink gingham paper is from My Minds Eye Lost and Found "Blush" paper pack and it's edged with EK's large dotted scallop punch. The sentiment is from Flourishes Mixin' Mugs...love all the versatile little sentiments in that set! I added an SEI butterfly to the sentiment circle, which started out white until I spritzed it with Starfish Glimmer Mist and that's about all she wrote!
OK...that's my take on the sketch...I can't wait to see yours. You'll find all the details here! Have a fabulous day!
