Simply Stampin' Sketch
The Simply Stampin' challenge this week is a Sketch (top right) and here is my interpretation of it. I started by stamping the border, in Early Espresso, with my adapted In Stitches wheel (see yesterday's post for more details about this) and then placed a strip of Crumb Cake DSP above it but slightly overlapping. Part of the swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor was coloured with a Crumb Cake marker and stamped above the DSP. I then took the stamp from the same set which looks a bit like a plaque, stamped onto Whisper White in Crumb Cake, added a few flowers in Crumb Cake, and then cut out leaving a white border around the edge and positioned this onto the card. The flowers, from Everything Eleanor, were stamped in Melon Mambo and the stamens highlighted using an Early Espresso marker, then cut out and glued in place (I used a dimensional for the flower at the bottom to give a bit of depth). A few Crumb Cake leaves punched with the 2-Step Bird punch were added along with a sentiment from Style Beautiful and challenge over!
