Stamping 411 ~ Every Moment

Hi Everyone, Boy it’s been a busy time lately. I seem to be meeting myself coming around the corner!

It’s time for another sketch challenge from Stamping 411 I hope you will play along.

Sketch 199

SSC199

….and my take on it.

Sketch 199 and rose tutorial pictures 016 

The weather has been so warm here in Florida that I had to make a Spring/Summer Card. I am showcasing the Every Moment Stamp Set. One of my favorites. I thought it should sizzle so I used Tangerine Tango as the contrasting color for my card stock.

I colored the image with my Watercolor Pencils and blended using my Watercolor Pencils. I love that technique. It’s just the best!! …and that verse….is that just not the truth?

The measurements for the card are:

Whisper White Base: 5 1/2 x 81/2

Tangerine Tango 4 x 5 1/4

White Embossed Dotted mat 3 7/8 x 5 1/8

Circles done with my Circle Scissors are 3” and 3 1/4” 9I opted to go round)

I used a scrap for the sentiment and butterfly.

The Ribbon is done with White Taffeta and I did a double bow attaching with a glue dot.

I hope you like it. I also hope you will play along this week. this was a fun sketch for me.

Have a fabulous weekend!!!
