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


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.

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.


And that’s it from me! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
