It's All About Stamping

Verve Anniversary Sketch #201



This card doesn’t feel like “me” at all but I had a really good time making it anyway!  Love these sketch challenges!  It’s muted colors and distressed and that’s just not me but I do like it.  I changed it to a square card.  For the size of the tree I needed the card to be bigger in that direction.  For the tree, I used reinkers  (Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Ruby Red) and Aqua painters.  For the outside edge I left the nestabilities template on and used a small dauber with Soft Suede ink. 

I hope to post a couple more today…but we’ll see if I can get to it.  My daughter and grandaughters are still here.

Here’s what was used:

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree
Paper: Autumn Traditions, Always Artichoke, Confetti White, Soft Suede, Ruby Red,
Ink: Soft Suede,
Accessories, Bone Folder (distressing), More Mustard buttons, Natural Hemp, Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, Nestabilities, Aqua Painter, Reinkers, Sponge Dauber,

Have a fantastic Friday! Thanks for stopping!
