When I saw the sketch for Fab Friday 89 , I knew I had to try it out with some of the new in-colors from Stampin’ UP! The five new colors are really a fresh take on what is already offered from the company. The challenge also had a ribbon highlight, so included the new in-color ribbon as well. Check out Fab Friday’s blog site for more great ideas with this sketch.
The basket weave background is from the Serene Scenery paper stack. It offers loads of realistic photographic imagery on one side of the paper and fun patterns on the other side, all in a convenient 6×6 size. The photos include pictures of leaves, sky, dandelions, wood, canvas stripe, basket weave and tall grass. Scrapbookers and card makers will love this stack.
I watercolored the floral image by putting a few drops of reinker on a paper plate and picking up the color with the clear wink of stella pen. Don’t use the lid of your stamp pad to do this as the glitter from the pen will get all over the pad when you close it. You could also use a blender pen to do this.
For the banner greeting, once I stamped “Celebrate”, I punched it out with the thoughtful banners punch and dipped the edges on the Peekaboo Peach ink pad.
