Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge
I was going to be done for the day, but I saw this sketch, looked up and found a packet of pre-cut pieces from a workshop and decided I had to make this one. I only had to trim a little from the pieces. And I knew I had to do it when I saw it because I am a symmetrical girl and I often have troubles with off-set things. I started with a base of Old Olive (I can't seem to get away from it no matter how hard I try!). I brushed the edges of the cardstock with the ink pad. Then I stamped the floral on Cameo Coral in Whisper White craft. That just does such a beautiful job of toning things down a touch. I stamped the focal image in Old Olive and used a second generation stamp to make the lighter image. I tied on a piece of Olive twill (wish that stuff would have made the big catalog, it's wonderful!) and stamped my sentiment in Olive too.
