Cherish




















While commenting back on some comments left on my blog this last week, I came across The Fresh Batch Sketch Blog. I love sketches, because a portion of my design work is already done for me, I just need to find the right stamps and card stock to work with the given sketch as inspiration.

I used the current sketch - sketch 11 from the Fresh Batch Blog as inspiration for my card. All images are from Kitchen Sink Stamps. As with my red rubber stamps, I like to condition my clear images to get nice crisp images when stamping, to do this I gently rub the end of a pencil eraser across the stamps, then wipe off any remaining eraser shavings, ink and stamp on scratch paper.

The Hibiscus is stamped in the follow SU colors:
  • Cameo Coral
  • Regal Rose
  • Rose Red
Leaves
  • Celery
  • Garden Green
  • Always Artichoke
I used my SAMJ to stamp Cherish from the Vintage Words using Momento Black Ink. I used the Circle Nestabilities and the Out of the Box Technique to cut around the Hibiscus. The smaller Hibiscus were stamped and popped up on dimensionals.
