From A to Z…

I’ve come up with the bright idea that I would give ALL of my stamp sets some ink. I’ve printed off my favourite sketch challenges and I am going to work my way through as many of them as possible. I’m starting with my Stampin’ Up! sets since I have them alphabetized in my cupboard. I’m going to try to make a few cards per night. I will run out of supplies long before I run out of sketch challenges, I’m sure!!
Bear with me, I’m going to post 5 cards today (in addition to the Mojo Monday 104 card I already posted earlier)! I’m starting off with Mercy’s sketch challenges over at Lord Have Mercy!
My first one uses “A Flower For All Seasons” from S-U and is the MTSC09 sketch challenge:
Mercy 9
My card base is Barely Banana and I addeda vertical panel of Riding Hood Red and a larger vertical panel of patterned paper from Figgy Pudding. I watercoloured the poinsettia’s & cardinals with my aquapainter and ink from the lid of Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Creamy Caramel. I punched them with the 1 1/4″ inch punch and layered them with Old Olive using the 1 3/8″ punch. I added some stickles to the poinsettia’s and crystal effects to the pots. I finished it off with a few scraps of Riding Hood Red ribbon tied in knots. Thanks for looking!
