Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge #99

This is my card for this weeks challenge on the Sunday Sketch and Stamp blog. I’m really enjoying using the sketches at the moment, and a great way to use the really pretty Basic grey, Capella collection of papers. Also I was able to get back to using some of my favourite stamps, these being from the wonderful designs of Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamps.

Card Recipe
6×6″ base card – white watercolour paper
backing papers – Basic Grey Capella collection
Embellishments – Flower & white flourishes, cordinating card stock stickers from Basic grey
– flourishes enhanced with liquid pearls (soft pink & white opal), faux pearls, sticky gems
Tim Holtz Distress Inks – weathered straw, bundled sage, brushed courdroy, peeled paint

To create the scene in the smallest circle (2.5″ diameter)  I used a collection of miniture clear stamps from Clarity, stamping them with distress inks onto watercolour paper. Having built up the scene, I used I make up sponge and again the distress inks (see the picture for colours), picking up small amounts of ink at a time and dabbing onto the paper. The bird table was masked, so it could be watercoloured  after.


Thanks for taking a look.
