Here it is, at last! My sketch Challenge card for this week, it took my a while to decide what to use, then I remembered my new Stampin Up 'Birthday Blossom' stamp that I arrived last week, with making two rush job commission cards I had forgotten about them.
I decided to use 'Coffee' ink to stamp with, as its less harsh than black and I wanted to use Kraft Card to stamp on to for a different look, so coffee ink worked better anyway.
I tried different colouring mediums to see which worked best on the Kraft card and decided to go with Watercolor pencils, the white worked really well to highlight and blend.
I used Creative Expressions 'Elegant Sentiments' stamps, a beautifully designed collection of sentiments that stamp so well, I believe they have been designed by Sue Wilson, I love the font she has used on this collection.
I matted the finished piece onto matching purple card and then onto a Kraft Card base.
What do you think, has stamping onto Kraft card worked out OK? I value your opinion.
I have to say stamping and colouring isn't something I choose to do regularly as I'm not a 'natural' stamper, but I found colouring this image very relaxing, I might have become addicted, I ordered some new stamps from Inkyliscious too, which I can't wait to get my hands on.
We are off to Pat's today, all being well, so I had best start packing my bag, I seem to take ten times as much stuff as the other two!
Have a fab day ladies,
Love and hugs,
