card patterns sketch and papertrey ink…

I just happened upon a lovely sketch challenge (# 159) that you can visit here.  I was intrigued with their sketch for the week and I wanted a second try at Papertrey Inks MIM #60.  You can see their instruction video on ‘generational’ stamping here.  It seemed that the sketch and this stamping technique would work well together.  It doesn’t hurt that I have some time this morning to play!!

I began with the Daydreamer stamp set from PTI.  There are only two inks used in the oval, pure poppy and pear pizzazz.  I only inked the flower head twice. The first time I stamped it three times and the second time I reinked, I stamped it twice. The stem and leaves were also inked only twice!  You can see the stamped images becoming progressively lighter.



The embossing along the bottom was stamped with PTIs’ ‘Background Basics Wrought Iron’ used with SUs’ pewter embossing powder.  That pewter powder is stunningly beautiful.  I borrowed the sentiment from the set, A Year of Flowers: Roses.  The first line of the sentiment is embossed with Filagree in white while the second line is stamped with SUs’ basic grey ink.  The seam tape is dyed with a Copic marker.  In real life, it is the color of ripe watermelon flesh!  The fiber trim along the lower edge is from Prima.

This is the sketch I worked from.



I just loved working this project.  There is something so satisfying about working just to please myself. If you like it, that’s the fun part after it’s done!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you’re having a delightful day.
