Today I finally did a sketch challenge from the Stamp with Us site. I am not at all sure if I really like it, however, you be the judge and let me know what you think.
Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Accent, Ruby Red, Basic Black and Whisper White.
The insert of my "sun" was taken from a tutorial by Michelle Zindorf (Go check out her work, she is amazing). I clear heat embossed the Upsy Daisy stamp in Old Olive, then brayered Apricot Appeal over the top of the card. Punched out a circle 1 3/8" on a post it note and brayered over Pumpkin Pie and then Ruby Red. Stamped over image using Basic Black and gently patted the black off the embossed areas. Used a white gel pen to highlight areas of the flowers and heat sealed. Once again I stamped Old Olive over from the original stamp (after stamping once on scrap paper to take off excess ink), giving a more behind the scenes look.
My "ribbon" was made using a 1/2" piece of Apricot Appeal overlaid by a piece of 3/8" Old Olive card that had been sponged with Old Olive ink.
The "Best Wishes" sentiment was stamped using the Oval All stamp onto Whisper White card in Apricot Appeal and then overstamped using Basic Black. It was punched out using the Wide Oval Punch.
