Fabulous Sketch




Good Thursday morning Peeps! I hope you all are having a great week, we are fast approaching the weekend and that is always good!

My card today was made for the sketch challenge on Mercy's Blog. She certainly has a knack for making sketches, and I have certainly got a knack for totally straying from the sketch. LOL!!!

My card is a 5-1/4 inch square and I was very much inspired by this card on Jenn's Blog "Stamp Your Heart Out". She is a fabulous talent.

I started with a piece of kiwi kiss card stock and followed that with a 1/4 inch smaller piece of riding hood red, followed by a piece of whisper white and then a piece of the oh so pretty Raspberry Tart DS paper. The back layer has another piece of the same DS paper layered on some more riding hood red and kiwi kiss card stock. I stamped the leaves from the SU Level 3 Hostess set "Dream a Little". The flower is stamped three times on scrap white with pink and then stamped again with the outline stamp with riding hood red ink. I then cut them out and layered it up with dimensionals. The hummingbird was stamped with basic gray that had been stamped off once. I then colored in his belly with a blender pen and some ink from the lid of the riding hood red ink. He is mounted on dimensionals as well. I added some pink pirouette ribbon around the back panel and some big white brads in both corners.

The sentiment is from the SU set "Absolutely Fabulous" and was stamped basic gray ink.

Well, that's all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
