It's been a long time since I've blogged, let alone create something. I recently viewed our upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual catalog and I LOVE IT! So many great stamp sets and accessories! Can't wait to place my preorder. For course, when new items are coming, room has to be made for them, hence our retired stamp sets and accessories has been released. Realizing how many items are retiring, it gave me a creative push to use my stuff!
The Designers over at the Fab Friday Blog Challenge have a great sketch that inspired me to create something! I can definitely see myself using this sketch over and over. Make sure to check out their blog for more inspiration with this sketch.
Here is how the sketch inspired me:
The used the stamp set called "Tap Tap Tap" which is being retired. I feel sad because I didn't ink it up that much and I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep it or not. I'm really bummed to say goodbye to Blackberry Bliss, it's been one of my favorite In-Colors. In fact, it was the main color I used for my wedding. I will definitely keep this color around. My color combo is Blackberry Bliss, Very Vanilla, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron. I used the clear Wink of Stella to watercolor the type writer. It was a fun technique, can't wait to try it again.
Love your card, Kathya! The coloring and Wink of Stella on the typewriter is so pretty. Such a fun design and you cleverly used so many elements of the stamp set. I'm so glad you joined us at Fab Friday!ReplyDelete
