First sketch attempt...

Posted by Ruth at 7:32 AM

I'm very much not impressed with myself. I follow Hand Stamped Sentiments (among others) and they posted a sketch challenge (HSSSC25). One of the reasons I've not entered one before is that they often require all or a high percentage of one vendor or another and well, my craft room is not as well stocked as some.

I used left overs from the card I made yesterday and broke out a CTMH stamp set (the name of which I can't find on the package, doh) and the SU retired background French Script. Oh and the "merci" comes from the SU set called... Merci. I used a resist effect for the heart, stamping first the "merci" then using versa mark to stamp the heart overtop... and sponging the Rose Red ink overtop.

I'm going to enter the card anyway... but I don't think I really captured the essence of the sketch. I'm not discouraged though!! I will enter another one!

I LOVE YOUR CARD. I so miss that background stamp, that was the one that was the hardest for me to get rid of. I wish they still had it. Your card is beautiful, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the key! Thanks for playing along at HSS!

Ruth,
This is beautiful. I agree with Erin, this background set was one of my favorites! Please feel free to use any vendor in your challenges. Maybe we need to make that clearer. We stick to SU, but have several participants that use other companies. Claudine is a great example of this. I personally enjoy seeing what's hot at other companies:) Thanks so much for joining us this week and I really hope to see you again in the future.
