Betsy Veldman's sketch callenge.


Good evening. How has the start of your week been? I am getting this up later than I had wanted to. I wasn't even sure if I would get it done but I am glad that I did. I had this card in mind since I saw this sketch. The colors weren't what I had originally thought of using, but I am happy with these colors.
I started out with Spring Rain for my main colors. The scallop punch is MS. I stamped Background Basics: Tin Type on a panel of Spring Rain in Raspberry Fizz and used Liquid Pearls in the centers. It shows up so much better in person.
I stamped the trees from Masculine Motifs in Vintage Tea Dye Duo Chai and also distressed all of the edges with the same ink. The sentiment was stamped with Smokey Shadow.
The button is from my stash which I used embroidery floss in the color to match Raspberry Fizz srung with pearls and beads from SU! Pretties kit.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving any comments you may have. They are so appreciated and welcomed.
Have a wonderful evening or day,
Liz
