StampTV Sketch Challenge

I found an interesting sketch on StampTV and made a quick card with it. The image was stamped with Memento black ink and cut out with a Nestabilities die, then colored with Copic markers and two Stampin’ Up! markers (because I didn’t have all the colors I needed in my small Copic marker collection). I was inspired by the colors in the Nouveau Chic papers: Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow, and Basic Gray. I sponged Apricot Appeal ink around the image and sentiment while the paper was still sitting inside the die.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow, I love your marker skills! (That’s a real term, right? LOL) Yellow around the edges – what to highlight the focal point. Okay, I sound silly but I hope you get my gist. πŸ™‚

    “what” -> “white” I sound silly AND can’t type correctly. Time for bed, I guess. πŸ™‚
