Three Clover Thursday...ISC Sneak Peek and a Challenge

Happy Thursday, I'm so glad you could stop by! Nothing like combining 3 things into one post - but I promise you, they all fit together. Being Thursday, it's time for Kerry's Three Clover Thursday Challenge, and this week it's using this Sketch. It's a great sketch, one I'll be using again!

I've been playing in the CuttleBug Challenge Blog July Challenges, so I grabbed their challenge for this week and used it as my color choices for my card. Here's the colors:








So what's the Sneak Peek you ask? It's the beautiful Serenity image from Innovative Stamp Creations, it's one of the new July Releases. You'll want to stop in on Monday and hop along the ISC Blog Hop, the DT has done some amazing things with the July Release! I'll also have a special treat or two, so be sure to check back!

A little bit about my card...The Serenity image is stamped in Black Archival on a piece Spectrum Roll. The Spectrum Roll Technique was done in one of my favorite pads - Pumpkin Patch. After my image was dry, I did morph the technique by adding color to the water and grass using an aquapainter and ink pads. The sentiment from this same sheet is stamped on a scrap piece of Spectrum Roll. For the Baja Breeze and Olive panels, I ran my card stock through the Big Shot using the Distressed Stripes CuttleBug Folder (another one of my favorites).

Details:
Stamps - Innovative Stamp Creations Serenity
Ink - Pumpkin Patch, Black Archival, Baja Breeze, Old Olive
Card Stock - Black, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Razzleberry Lemonade, White Coated
Other - Brads, Big Shot, Distressed Stripes CuttleBug Folder, Brayer, Spritz Bottle, Aquapainter
