Blog Hop Sketch


I struggled with this sketch, but I'm glad I tried it because I like how it turned out. I used 4 stamps from Theresa's Aloha set. The bubblegum pink layer is stamped with the largest flower in the set. The punched small flowers are splattered with Momento Tangelo ink using the "sand" stamp from Melanie's Gifts from the Sea set. If you are unable to see the splatter, right click on the card to open another window. It will have a larger photo.

I'm really lucky to have this Aloha set. I played in the CHA challenges on StampTV and was randomly drawn as the winner of this set! Thanks Theresa!
