The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 70

Welcome from Jane's page again

A nice simple sketch this week.

I thought I would keep it simple this week as well as sometimes less is more....

Here is what I came up with using my favourite colours

I'm not sure what is happening at the moment but my pics are hit and miss.
It is so so much prettier than this in real life.

I made the background using sponge daubers for the colours.
I then spritzed the flower and leaves from Grateful Bunch with water and stamped on the background.
You will see a slight watermark on the paper.

  • Stamps:  Grateful Bunch
  • Ink:  Black Memento, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum
  • Card: Whisper White, Basic Black and Bermuda Bay
  • Tools: Spritzer with water and sponge daubers
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals, Wink of Stella, Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and Glue Dots
