I needed to do some stamping today - even if it was only a little bit - but I also needed some inspiration & I found it at Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge Blog.
Here is the sketch;
& here is my card;
I used a square black card as my base & chose some pink & lavendar coloured papers from my stash. The stamp is from a set I bought recently for only £4.99 but I have thrown the packing away & cannot remember whose stamps they are. I am going to the shop where I got them from tomorrow - I must have a look so that I know for the future.
I stamped the tulip in black archival ink over some of the pink dotty paper & then added colour with pearlescent water colour paints. Colouring on patterned paper was something I saw on the Internet last year & this is the first time I have tried it. It is really nice. The happy birthday stamp is from Clearly Besotted & the flowers from my stash.
I like this sketch & will use it again.
Thank you for stopping by & please call again. Why not pop over to the challenge blog & see other ideas or why not try a card yourself.
