SSSC121......Kind Thanks



Good Morning Peeps!!!

 It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the fun sketch Karen has for us this week:



I pulled out another sneak peek stamp set from the upcoming new Stampin Up catalog.
This set is a hostess set called "Simply Soft". I decided to go vintage/shabby chic with my card. I first stamped the flowers with black stazon onto some watercolor paper. I colored with my aqua painter and some old olive, baja breeze, marina mist and crumb cake ink. I sponged with crumb cake and darkened it a bit more with some soft suede ink. I used the "French Foliage" Stamp set to add some water marks. I matted this with some baja breeze card stock.

The circle is made with crumb cake card stock that I embossed with the vintage wall EF. I then crumbled it all up and smoothed it back out, sponged it and then stamped some more images from the French Foliage set.
The sentiment is from the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set and is stamped with Soft Suede ink. The BG paper is also a sneak peek and is from the Pocketful of Posies DSP pack. That layer is also stamped and sponged. I added a vintage brad to the sentiment piece. I used some crochet lace trim to make a bow and added some basic pearls to finish it off.




I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with and don't forget to link it up over at Karen's blog for all of us to see.



OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:







Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

This is STUNNING Vicki! I watercolored on my card too, but somehow yours turned out WAAAAY better!! Is an aquapainter one of those water-filled brushes? Because that's what I used, but mine doesn't look like this! It's different from the blender pens, right? Maybe I just need practice...

Blue and brown - one of my favorite color combos. This is just lovely - beautiful DPs and texture and I really like the sentiment banner.

Hope you had a good weekend!
