Addicted to Stamps & More-sketch



Hi everyone and welcome to another sketch challenge at ATSM. Lots of crafters seem to like a sketch as it gives you the basic structure for your card and we have  a nice simple one for you this week.  We are also sponsored once again by the amazing Bugaboo who are offering 7 free digi stamps to the winner of this weeks challenge.



As you are probably aware you can turn the sketch on it's side or change the shapes as long as the finished card is a take on the sketch. Come and see what I came up with:

Apologies for the bad photo but I tried everything to no avail! The base card is pearlised, which always appears pink in my photos. I took a smaller piece of navy card and punched a scallop out and using the waste as my guide, I stamped a design on the base card using Su Botanical Blooms and Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist inks. The butterfly is from SU Live your Dream and I added a couple for some dimension. The sentiment is a See Dee one on a Just Rite diecut label. The ribbon was off a present and finished it off.
Pop over to the ATSM blog for more inspiration from the DT and I hope you will join in the fun this week:)

Hi Val. Love the navy card front with the scalloped window. Your stamped vines and flowers are so pretty and the butterflies add wonderful depth. Loll xx

It's an elegant card. You've stamped the scalloped oval beautifully - at first I actually thought you had used a DP - and the butterflies are so decorative!

Morning Val. Such a lovely card. Pearl card and mirror card are so hard to take photos of. I keep forgetting about turning the sketch. Love how you have used the bow instead of the heart.
Crafty hugs, Florence x
