Hello! Welcome to another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! This sketch has been sat on my desk for a couple of weeks, but only in the last few days have I actually managed to create something! I love sketches like that, really thinkers, thanks Louise!
I have to admit that I have moved things around a bit on this one, but the sketch was definitely my ‘jumping off point!’
This week I received one of the new Ombre Ink Pads from my gorgeous team leader, and this weeks sketch challenge just seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it! The flower is taken from Crazy About You and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry Ombre – there are a couple of important things to remember when using the new Ombre pads
- Larger, and more solid images work best
- take the stamp to the pad to ink it up, gently tap the stamp to the pad repeatily in a circle pattern to ensure that you don’t end up with a stripy image. There is a great video on the Stampin’ Up! YouTube channel that I will post to my Facebook page later on.
- There are 3 great colours available; Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral
The horizontal and vertical elements of the sketch were the trickiest bit for me, but I never need an excuse to grab Gorgeous Grunge off the shelf!
The leaves are taken from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. Stamped in Cucumber Crush onto Cucumber Crush Card stock and fussy cut. The card is finished with the sentiment heat embossed in Copper and some loops of the Copper Metallic Thread.
