It's been awhile but I finally had a chance to play along with the CPS sketch and I really liked the layout. I tried making the card a bit vintage or distressed looking (figured it would go with the look of the papers) so I sponged on some brown and purple markers. It left blotches of ink rather than shading like I wanted, but by distressing the edges it helped soften up things. I hope!

Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Watercolor Plants
Accessories: Angelee Soar with it Collection and cardstock, Lemonaid Buttons and Flowers collection, cuttlebug emboss plate, twine, lace ribbon, tombow markers

EXCITING NEWS!! I received my preorders of Inspiration Avenue, the latest magalogue from The Angel Company and I am not kidding when I say it's wonderful! 42 new stamp sets plus lots of great project ideas. TAC has really out done itself and included little mini color segments to make it feel more like a magazine than a catalog. You won't be disappointed! I will be shipping copies out on Monday to those of you who preordered them, but if you'd like to order a copy - please get with me! I still have the base catalog on hand (which includes a $4 off coupon) and if you buy both together - you'll definitely save on shipping!
