Atlantic Hearts Sketch #329

The color scheme of the True Love papers is certainly a favorite of mine.  I can't get enough of the combo of Eggplant, Sage and Sapphire!  The purple family has always been my favorite color. Being a mom of all and my craft room are about the only place I can express it!  I can't even wear it!  Purple just does not work for me in clothes, either!  So cards, it is!  I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges.

My lovely watering can of flowers is from the Where Happiness Blooms stamp set.  This set has been wildly popular and has sold out previously.  The set is in stock as I write this, but is due to be retired August 31, 2019.  If you would like a set for your collection, now is the time to order! You can order just the stamp set or a bundle with Thin Cuts dies.  I personally love the cut out features of the dies.

Design Tip: After inking up the multiple layers on my stamp set, I went back in and added a little shading with pencils for added depth.  I also went over the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush for some added bling.

  1. Allisa! OH MY GOSH! I love your card. Those papers and that image are right up my alley. Just love it. Unfortunately we are in the middle of restoring a house built in the 1890s, so I have no funds for goodies right now. But keep posting your gorgeous work. I love seeing it!
