Surprise, surprise...I didn't flip the sketch this week! Ha ha!!
It's been so long since I inked up one of the inspirational sentiments from Vertical Greetings II by My Favorite Things so it was high time to get that stamp set inky. I started with a Whip Cream card base and added a layer of Kraft and Steel Grey.
I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink onto the Whip Cream panel but there was too much empty space around it. I chose one of the flourish images from Finishing Flourishes and stamped it around the sentiment with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.
For the vertical panel I chose patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Unforgettable collection and used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the Berrylicious scalloped strip. The Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics was perfect for cutting out the Pink Lemonade flag element.
I took the liberty of adding a pretty corrugated flower, which I cut out using the Pretty Posies Die-namics. I added some patterned leaves which I cut out with the Upsy Daisy Die-namics then topped it with a bright Razzle Berry button tied with Hemp Cord.
On the inside I used one of the sentiments from All Smiles. I think I'll be giving this to hubby. I know it's got a flower on the front but he'll still appreciate it, and he might even notice that the flower is made of cardboard.
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
