About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hi and happy Tuesday evening,

I'm home alone this week as Mr. Personal Chef is working in Virginia. I spent last evening finishing some work reports and watching baseball. I wasn't ready for sleep so I decided to make a quick card. Here's what I came up with using this week's CAS(E) THIS SKETCH sketch.

The stamp set is MFT Sunflower. I inked it using Distress Ink in two gold shades and stamped it onto some water color paper. Using an aqua painter, I went over each petal to activate the ink with water. The center of the flower is stamped in a darker gold and a dark red. Using a Die-namics circle die, I cut it out for the focal image in the sketch. The sentiment is a die from Avery Elle. The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn's Fall plaid 6x6 pad.  I really like the browns, yellows and red together. Such a great fall color combo! A few flower sequin for embellishments.

Have a great Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by,
