With it being a little cooler this morning (only after a torrential downpour) I can sit at my desk & craft a little. This being the case, I thought I would do the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches & as usual I am just scraping it in.
I also challenged myself to create with a stamp set sitting on my self & not one from the new 2017 Occasions or SAB Catalogues – very hard to do, but I’ve done it. Anyhow, this sketch was perfect for the “Touches of Texture” Stamp Set.
For the small piece down the RHS of the sketch, I thought I would try something a little different, so I stamped the floral bouquet image a couple of times & coloured with the lovely new Watercolour Pencils.
I also blended the colours with the Clear Wink of Stella, which added a lovely shine to the card & popped the flowers a little. A shame you can’t really see it in the photo.
So that the card popped a little more, I’ve used Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Panel. This instantly lifted the card as it highlights the DSP (Serene Scenery) & the greeting, which is then highlighted a little more by added a couple of Enamel Shapes to the side.
For the inside, I cut a piece of leftover DSP, added a strip of Bermuda Bay & adhered to the side of a piece of Whisper White before adding to the inside of the card.
Thank you once again FMS for a great challenge. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed creating my card although I didn’t really know where I was going when I started.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
