...Sketch Challenge #218

This was my submission for today's Sketch Challenge #218 at SCS. I started with a Tempting Turquoise Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Basic Black Cardstock. The large Whisper White Cardstock panel was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, as was the Watercolor Paper focal panel. The patterned papers used were from the Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper pack, and three Silver Jumbo Brads were added to the polka dotted panel. The images and sentiment were from the set "Blooming With Love", and were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for proper placement of all the stamps. The focal panel was colored using Blender Pens and the following Classic Ink Pads: Kiwi Kiss, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Cameo Coral, and Close to Cocoa.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will have a new Sketch Challenge for you all to try tomorrow. I have enjoyed seeing all of the creations and beautiful cards that you have been making with my sketches this far. Until later...
