Stamping 411 Sketch 191

Here we are again…..another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411 hope you’ll play along.

Here is the sketch:


…and my COLORFUL !!! Yes you read right….my COLORFUL and flipped interpretation. hehe

Sketch 191 002 

It’s amazing how fast and easy this card was and how I just knew what I was going to do with it. I just felt like a little sunshine in my little world today (it’s raining) and these colors came to mind. I’ve got Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait going on here. The various colors are just repeat stamping for lighter and darker shades. I had forgotten how fun that little technique is. I had just mentioned it to a new downline the other day and I thought to myself…you need to bring that oldie back…..

So here is my Repeat Stamping Card hope you like it.

The base of the card is Poppy Parade and cut at 4 1/4 x 11. The Embossed mat is using Peach Parfait and is 4 x 5 1/4 and run through the Big Shot to add the textured dots using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. The Poppy Mat for the image is 2 x 3 5/8 and the image piece is 3 1/2 x 2 7/8. I drew the stems with a Wild Wasabi Marker and added a little ink smudge to the bottom of the vase to ground it.

Speaking of the vase it’s done with the Extra large oval punch and cut off at the top and bottom. I used two thin strips of Peach Parfait to decorate with and added them with my 2-Way Glue Pen. Then added the tiny pearls for embellishment. Now it kind of looks like a barrel but that’s alright. I kind of like it and will take a barrel of flowers anytime.

The Stamp Set is Sweet Summer and I didn’t think it was my favorite one but is sure making it’s way to the top as I've had more fun with it.

I then used some of out Poly Twill Ribbon in Poppy Parade and did the Thank You from Curly Cute in Poppy as well.

So there ya go…..easy, peasy Colorful Card for this weeks challenge. I hope you will play along.

Have a good one!!
