This week's layout for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge is any configuration as long as it's a slimline card. I thought it would be fun to create a longer than normal sentiment from the Garden of Blessings stamp set from Ink to Paper. There are many, many options of sentiment combos but I finally settled on this one.
I started with stamping a row of these funky fun florals and tried to combine inks on the same stamp to get some varied shading. I do this by inking the entire stamp in the lighter shade then added a darker ink around the edges with either a sponge dauber or a blending brush.
Here is what I used...
STAMPS: Garden of Blessings (Ink to Paper).
PAPER: Bitty Big: Harvest Gold, True Black, White (Ink to Paper).
INK: Pure Poppy, Melon Berry, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Ripe Avocado, True Black - all dye inks by Ink to Paper.
It's Friday already and the weekend will be full with helping our son and DIL with a yard sale on Saturday. On Sunday, our church will be opening the doors and meeting together - with precautions - for the first time since all the Covid-19 restrictions began. No more listening to recorded sermons in my nightgown, bare feet and no makeup - lol!
Happy stamping! ~Wanda
