Sweet Sunday Sketch - Guest Stamper!


I have exciting news: I get to play along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch as a Guest Stamper... woohoo!

I love Karen's sketches so when I found out that I'd been chosen to be a guest designer I was thrilled! This week's sketch was a fun one with lots of possibilities:

I decided to use a stamp set that should {hopefully!} be in our UK catty come October called Elements of Style...

The floral image was embossed with black on watercolour paper and coloured with markers and an aqua brush. The dsp is a mix of Not Quite Navy prints and Paisley Petals. The sentiment is from Apothecary Art, stamped with Not Quite Navy on Daffodil Delight and turned into a banner using a square punch to shape the end. I created a ruffled ribbon effect using some white organza ribbon and sticky strip then finished it off with a matching bow with an antique brad in the middle. I couldn't resist adding a little butterfly as a final touch!

I used the colour palette from this week's Colour Q challenge but had to make some substitutions because we don't have the new in colours yet (not long now!!).

You can check out what Karen and the rest of the DT have created here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
