Another great sketch to work with this week over at Friday Sketchers which has been provided for us by Kim from Canada. I love the way that the girls from each country are taking it in turns to give us their sketches, something a bit different :)
I have to say Kim, that i found this one a bit of a challenge, so i decided to keep my design very simple :) My image is called 'Chandelier' from Penny Black which i think is a perfect name for a fuchsia! I have dabbed colour directly from the Adirondack inkpads onto the stamp, starting with the lightest colour and building up. Once i am happy with the coverage, a quick spritz with my water spray bottle before placing down onto the watercolour paper.
The papers are all Basic Grey from the 6 x 6 pad 'Sugared', and i created the scallop with a corner rounder punch with the 'wings' taken out! 7 Gypsies roller stamps were used to create the sentiment which were inked with 'Cranberry'. This is starting to 'grow' on me, although it is rather pale in colour!! I don't really do pastels, i usually go for much brighter colours :0) but i guess it's good to have a change every once in a while!
I hope you find sometime to stamp today.... see you soon :)
