Today's card was made using the new Simply Sketched hostess set. Do I 'simply love' this set? Ohhh yeah! It's one of my favorites from the whole catalog, so that's saying a lot! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and last night the ladies in my hostess club fell in love with it too! We made a softly pretty card using 3 stamp sets and a couple of different techniques to make the card 'simply fabulous'. Maybe you'll fall in love with it too. Remember, you have to be a hostess to get this set. If you'd like to book a party (or even a book-party!), let me know. I'd love to plan one with you. It'll be lots of fun. OK, here we go with today's card...
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, and Baked Brown Sugar, and Illuminate
Paper: Whisper White and Crisp Cantaloupe, and Cardstock Vellum
Accessories: Bitty Butterfly Punch, Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, and Glue Dots
A trick I tried with this card is giving the stamped images a quick wash of color with the Aqua Painter. Then go back over it where ever I wanted some shading using the Blender Pens. I found it didn't raise the nap of the paper like repeated layers of using the Aqua Painter does at times. That's a nice thing to know when layering colors!
What more can I say? It's simply gorgeous and you need to make one (or a dozen!) too!!
Thanks for stopping by to see what's new. Come and stamp with me again soon. Sharon
