Inking of You

I finally got my SCS sketch challenge done for the week! This is #106. To be truthful, the sketch challenge is my gauge for how busy I actually am....this week I didn't even look at the challenge until 2 days after it was posted. Today we're hiding out, and I think this card is all I've actually accomplished besides a pan of homemade rolls!

This color combo was in an ad banner I saw yesterday, and I had to try it out. That green is not in my usual color palette, but it works.

I don't actually own the TAC stamp set this stamper girl came from...I looked at it in the catty and only liked that particular stamp, and didn't figure I'd use the others much, or even that one much for that matter...I asked on SCS if someone would send me some stamped images instead, and somebody sent me a TON of them. I colored with Prismacolor pencils, and used a little mineral spirits to blend. The background of the image is watercolored a little. I cut the sentiment from one that originally said "I was thinking of you today", which was much too long for a Thinking of You card anyway, and just begged to be made into something I could only use on a stamper's RAK. :)

The leaf stamp is from Impression Obsession - I stamped it repeatedly for a flourish effect...I still haven't gotten the flourishes from Tuscan Rose....I told myself I AM going to get them, but I'm going to wait until I receive compensation for the cards I sent to My Heart Stamps for You. I still haven't heard from them....sigh....

The background is from Cornish Heritage the paisley. I still have a few more of their backgrounders on my wish list...gotta wait though.

I flipped the corner up...I don't know that I've ever done that before, but I just needed a distraction in that corner since all the brown dragged the focus up above center.
Thanks for checking in on me!
