Stamping 411 – A Kind Word

 

Today's Stamping 411 Sketch challenge was really fun!  I was able to pull out a set that I earned free with hostess credits and finally ink it up!  Stampin' Up's A Kind Word is such a sweet set.  I love the little faces on it and that basketful of kittens is why I really got it!

 

I started with a base of Almost Amethyst and layered on the So Saffron background floral from Tea Party Designer Paper.  I used a strip of the small floral print from Pawsitively Prints and then made the Scallop Flower from the same print!  I added a pink Rhinestone brad in the center to hold it in place and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

She was stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White, then I paper pieced her pinafore dress with the Yellow Gingham check from Pawsitively Prints Designer Paper.  I watercolored her with Stampin' Write Markers and my AquaPainter.  Finally, I added some Almost Amethyst butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die.

 

 

I think it turned out SO sweet!  Make sure to check out what the other Stamping 411 Design Operators have done this week!  I'm sure their designs will be fabulous using this sketch.  Make sure to play along this week and add your creation to Mr. Linky over on Stamping 411!
