The Sketch Challenge today on Paper Craft Planet is being hosted by ME, so I hope you'll play along! This sketch is based on this card that I created a few days ago with my new stamps from Taylored Expressions, but for my official challenge card today, I turned the sketch on it's side and used my beautiful new Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi-Step Tulip Garden stamps instead!
My tulip is stamped in four steps, starting with a base of SU! Cameo Coral stamped second generation. The next layer was stamped in Cameo Coral first generation. The third layer is SU! Ruby Red, and the fourth layer is SU! Cranberry Crisp. The leaves were stamped in three layers starting with SU! Gable Green stamped second generation, then Certainly Celery and then Old Olive. After cutting out the image with a long rectangle Nestabilities, I sponged Blush Blossom ink around the edges while the cardstock was still in the die.
I hope you'll make time this weekend to play along and upload your creation to Paper Craft Planet! Remember to tag your upload with SK031409 so that I can find all the cards and add them to the Sketch Challenge album! I can't wait to see what you create!
On a side note, would you please join me in giving thanks to God? My daughter Kaylie, who as you all know is a new driver, was involved in an accident on her way home from softball practice yesterday. She was on one of our country roads, and rear-ended a pick-up truck that was in front of her making a left turn. She was pretty upset, but otherwise she and a friend that was with her were uninjured. My mind will not stop wandering to what could have happened, and while we're pretty upset at her carelessness, I'm extremely grateful to be able to still wrap my arms around her today. Praise be to God!
Thanks for stopping by today!
