A Sketch For You To Try

Each Saturday, Jen (i{heart}2stamp) provides a Sketch For You To Try; seldom do I seem to find the time to participate, but I did this week. I didn't follow the sketch exactly...but hopefully she'll grant me some grace. :D

I ended up really liking the simplicity of what I came up with without adding the other elements - sorry Jen!

This is another new stamp set from Verve Visual called Floral Symphony, the stamps and sentiments all combine so well with all their other releases this month; I just love everything about this set.

I stamped the stems with VersaMagic Spanish Olive and colored with Copics. The flowers were stamped in Papertreyink's Pure Poppy. I also colored the flowers with Copics, a lighter color all over and then a darker color around the center of the flowers. I then added some jewels from My Favorite Things; I love their sparkle!

The base card is SU! Real Red, layered with SU! Basic Black; the DP is also by SU!; I just love the 2-sided paper they offer! I used Papertreyink's Vintage Cream card stock to stamp the images and the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped in Pure Poppy and comes from Lisa Johnson's stamp set, Flower Garden Sentiments.

Thanks for visiting; if you have some time, join us this week for Jen's SFYTT! Hugs, ~M.

PS - stop by later this week, I'll show you my 'stepping out' and trying something new if you promise to be kind - YIKES! LOL
