This card is made using the February Simon Says Stamp card kit & the Deconstructed Sketch 186. I took the gelato and added perfect pearl water, which I mixed myself using water and dry perfect pearls. I painted that mixture onto the sticky back canvas and added rub-ons after it dried. The embossing in the background is from a Darice Folder and the flag and circle dies are My Favorite Things.
As we scoop ourselves out of the snow here in New York, we’ve got another Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch Challenge. The challenge will remain open until Monday, February 9th and to keep it light and easy, there is no specific theme.
Here’s the sketch:
I chose to go with a masculine/boy style card and rotate the sketch making a horizontal card. I used the “Boy oh Boy” 6 x 6 paper pad from Carta Bella. The eyeglass die is My Favorite Things and the “eye chart” and sentiment is Tim Holtz. Background is Impression Obsession. My plan is to donate this to Send a Smile 4 Kids because they are expanding and have gotten more hospitals in need of cards. Those of you who were sending tons of cards to Operation Write Home and have extras now they have slowed down, please consider donating to this great cause. Here’s how.
One last tidbit. If you like my new Watermark I got it from Karen Giron, at the Sweetest Thing blog who is offering these at a GREAT price. Please support her new endeavor and pass the word to your groups as watermarks are always needed.
