SCS 249 Sketch - Fall Flowers

Wow...I can't believe that I actually completed a SCS sketch and got it posted on the day it came out! This is a first for me. George is traveling so I stayed up a bit later and stamped my Watercolor Plants by coloring them with tombow markers and just a spritz of water. I also happened to get some new Label Nestabilities in so I was happy that the two paired well. No sketch when I checked so I went to bed. In the morning, the perfect sketch awaited me and I got to work!

Just for some extra pizzazz...I hand cut the brown border out around the main image and I stamped Swirlies with Tombow green markers, again lightly spritzed with water.

Card Materials: Stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Watercolor Plants, Swirlies
Accessories: TAC Brown cardstock, DCWV pack, antique brads, nestabilities, fiskar border punch, watercolor paper, Tombow Markers and water bottle

Now if my work with Watercolor Plants hasn't convinced you yet to buy this set from The Angel Company, I hope you'll take a peek at what Silke has been doing with them over in Germany. She's used different techniques and some great, non traditional colors with this set for some WOW cards!

I keep seeing that printed background ya'll just rip a page out of a book? Very nice card. Love the layout and spritzing, makes it softer looking. Sharon NJ

Chris said...

Sharon, I do just rip out a page! I have an old book that was headed to Goodwill and that's my book for stamping. :) I do know though that you could probably get free "text" online that you then just print off on your computer...but I love the aged look of this paper.
