Did you see the Clear Dollar Stamps Guest Designer Challenge for this month? It's a sketch challenge, and you know how much I like sketch challenges even when I'm not playing for the prize!
Since Lori said that we could use any shapes for the three panels in the sketch, I played around a little. I wanted to use the Thankful for You set again. I just love this set! It's perfect for everyday notes... you know, the ones you write "just because".
I paper pieced the vase and two of the flowers, using the colors from this weekend's Clear Dollar Stamp Color Challenge and then I added shading with copics (R22, R29, YG03, YG63, G99, Y17, YR07, C1, E55). After I cut and embossed with my Classic Large Rectangle Nesties, I sponged the edges with Memento Desert Sand and SU Cocoa ink while the image was still in the die. If you click on the picture you may be able to see that I used my SU Canvas Background stamp very lightly over the image and tab to enhance the vintage look.
Thanks for stopping by - now go quick and enter the guest designer challenge! I promise you'll have *so* much fun if you win!!!!
