TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge

Another Monday....Another sketch challenge from MJ at TechnoStamper. This weeks sketch would lend itself nicely to many stamps - I've decided to use my new Inspired by Nature - which is available for purchase today!

I did a little Faux Dry Emboss on my Mellow Moss card stock, using the grass from the IBN set. For the flowers - I colored my stamp with mellow moss, chocolate chip and pretty in pink markers, then stamped on my white card stock. I then used my aquapainter, and went over my image to blend and soften the colors. The sentiment is stamped in chocolate chip, and pretty in pink. I inked the sentiment with chocolate, then using my blender pen, I removed the ink from "with", let it dry, then re-colored it with pretty in pink, I huffed on my image then stamped on the white card stock. The butterflies are stamped in so saffron and edged with chocolate chip, then placed on dimensionals. I couldn't resist adding some chocolate sponging and distressing to my card!

Lisa, SUCH a gorgeous sample! I'm a TJN member too - I'm gonna have to look up that technique! Isn't it just stamping in white slightly off from the colored image? Also, SO glad to see you're still an SU demo! WHOOO-HOOO for SU and we can order TODAY!
