It's been awhile since I've been able to join the lovely Karen over at the sweetest thing but I really wanted to break the drought on the sketch challenges and give this one a go! I ordered a pack of the new DSP Cottage Wall, it has a lovely mix of colours including one of the new in colours Rich Razzelberry, then Old olive and Orchid Opulence. I've never really picked Orchid Opulence to do anything but it's surprised me and I quite like it!! Trust Stampin Up! to come up with great new colour combo's!!
I love the stamp I've chosen here and don't seem to use it enough so it was my challenge to use it with the sketch!
Then here is a close up of the edges, I just simply sponge dauberd them with old olive. It's a really soft effect, unlike just rubbing the sides directly onto the ink pad. (had this idea given to me by the fabulous Carli! HUGE WAVES TO YOU MY DEAR FRIEND!!)
It's been so super wonderful having time to play over the Easter break, hopefully it won't be long before you see me again with another card to post!
Smiles and Hugs
