CC252 & SC262

I started this card with the color challenge in mind -- Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, and Handsome Hunter. I wanted to see how these colors would look with the Upsy Daisy Stamp set. I used my markers and colored different parts of the flowers. Then I misted the stamp with a spray bottle filled with water, and then stamped the image on my card stock. I love the way this turned out. Then I had to figure out a layout -- which I usually do before I start stamping. I check the sketch challenge for today, and I thought this might work. I had a difficult time getting the little square up in the corner.


Since I flipped the sketch, and didn't really use the corner square, I am not sure this qualifies for the sketch challenge, but I am going to post/upload it anyway. I will do another one tomorrow.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
Inks: Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Handsome Hunter
Extras: Cuttle bug, Swiss Dot folder, Bermuda polka dot ribbon, Modern Label punch, dimensionals, mat pack, paper piercer
