Coral Blackberry Rose...


I'm just popping in quickly to share a little something I put together for a couple of challenges: Case this Sketch and Just Add Ink...

I recently took part in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class at Online Card Classes and one of the techniques I learnt was 'no outline colouring' which I just had to try seeing as how much I love colouring! This is what I ended up with...

I used the Sweetbriar Rose stamp, stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White card then coloured with Blendabilities - this technique works when you use a light coloured ink because the lines disappear under the ink from the markers - I love how it turned out and will definitely have to try it again! The Blackberry Bliss background was stamped with the Dictionary Background, which you can't see very well in the photo (it is there though - I promise!).

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Sweetbriar Rose, Dictionary, Good Greetings
Ink: Sahara Sand, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Blendabilities (Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler)
Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Naturals White
Accessories: Mossy Meadow ribbon
Tools: Project Life Corner punch

Thanks for stopping by!
