Welcome to this week's TGIF Challenge! It's a sketch challenge week and this sketch is one that could lend itself to SO MUCH creativity! Check out all of the projects made with this sketch on the TGIF Challenge blog.
I am a huge fan of watercolor wash backgrounds. They are so easy to create and are a great base to start any card. I used Calypso Coral ink and an Aqua Painter to created my watercolor wash. I wanted to add a little more dimension to the background so I stamped the sprigs from the Vertical Garden stamp set in Versamark ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The Hello verse was stamped in Tip Top Taupe and also Calypso Coral.
Vertical Garden happens to be on the Stampin' Up! retired list. This set is available right now at a 30% discount for $17.85, while supplies last. If fact, many of the supplies on this card are only available until June 1.
I'm sad to see this stamp set go but we've got to make room for all the new goodies.
Thanks for stopping by and for all of your kind comments.
