Amy's Sketch

The Ladies, Ink blog group I belong to issued a 2 part challenge. Part 1 was to make a sketch of our own and create a card based on that sketch. Part 2 is to make a card based on each Ladies sketch.

This card is created based on Amy’s sketch. You can check out her blog – the link is on my side bar.

For this card I used SU’s Dream Garden which is one of the sets I got for my birthday. Since I am brayer challenged, I decided to try Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Applicator instead of my customary sponges. OMGosh! I love it. First I did NOT have ink all over my fingers and the look is wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: SU Dream Gardens

CS and DP: SU Kraft, Real red, Basic Black, WW

Inks, markers and coloring tools: Clear EP, SU kiwi kiss, Always Artichoke, so saffron, more mustard, tangerine tango

Extra goodies: Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Applicator
