CPS #6

Click here to view this week's card sketch. This week's sketch was a blast! Using Twinkling H2O's in Cherry Sorbet, Pink Grapefruit, Apple Blossom, Lemongrass, Kiwi and Olive Vine, I colored this super spring image from Hero Arts. After the paints dried, I glued them to the card in this mosaic pattern. The last step was to add a piece of Stampboard using the same stamped image. I colored the background of the board with Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Tattered Rose; stamped the image and painted it with the same H2O's. The final touch was to scratch into the board with the scratch tool to create the white highlights. Krylon pen for the edges.

Can't find Stampboard? Call Cat for service with a smile!

Thanks for stopping by!
