Add a Splash of Color to Every Day–SSSC #205

SSSC205_2014feb2


Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has a great classic sketch for us today and we hope to see you play along this week.


SSSC205
I decided to go all bright and cheerful today. I started with a Razzle Berry card stock base, then trimmed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock and began to stamp the flower background from LJD Spring Backgrounds with Razzle Berry ink. I filled in the flower centers with an orange Copic marker and then matted it with Orange Fizz card stock.

For the next element, I stamped some color using Abstract Art with Razzle Berry ink and Orange Fizz ink. I decided to add just a touch of Black Licorice ink to tie in the stamped sentiment and the button.

Before I adhered that to the stamped background, I slipped a snippet of Orange Fizz grosgrain ribbon under the edge and tied on a Black Licorice button with baker’s twine. The sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Art, was stamped on another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and splashed with a touch of Razzle Berry ink and Orange Fizz ink before being popped up on foam.

The inside has another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Art.
