Stamping 411 – Sketch challenge


Well, I know I’m enjoying the last day of Convention…the time always goes by SO fast!  I love meeting up with friends I only see 1-2 times a year and the energy I get from being around all those creative people is unbelievable!  I haven’t missed a Convention in the over 7 years I’ve been a demonstrator!

For today’s Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge, I experimented with my Lattice Bigz Die a little.  I ran Rich Razzleberry cardstock thru the Big Shot with the Lattice Bigz Die, then cut the 4 square design in half, so I could line the bottom of the card with it.  I layered it over a design from Cottage Wall Designer Paper.  The base of the card is Rich Razzleberry, with a stripe of Melon Mambo.  I stamped the basil herb image from Herb Expressions in Old Olive on Whisper White, colored it with Stampin’ Up! markers and AquaPainter and layered it on Melon Mambo and Old Olive.  I did use the Ticket Corner punch on each corner of each layer.  I punched the butterfly with the new Butterfly punch from the Cottage Wall Designer Paper and added a Slot Punch body in Old Olive for contrast.  The greeting was stamped with Basic Black on the Rich Razzleberry base…hard to see in the picture.

Love this sketch!  I’ll be using it again.  Hope you try it out and post to Stamping 411 Mr. Linky so we can see your creations!

Have a GREAT weekend and safe travels to all my friends going home from Convention!
