Most of the Paper Smooches stamp sets I have are pretty cutesy, so tonight I decided to try and create what I will call a *less-cutesy* design using this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Designer Drafts Sketch.
I started with beautiful dogwood designer paper from the Nantucket Collection by Pink Paislee. Hexagons from GeoGraphic were stamped first in India ink and then over-stamped a second time with Aquamarine ink. The Sympathy Sentiment was stamped in India ink as well.
I stamped the flower from PotPourri twice in Aquamarine ink on ivory cardstock before detail cutting & foldting. I finished with a tiny charcoal butterfly and a pearl center for my layered blooms.
Finished card is 4" x 6". I'm also playing along with the Put A Stamp On it Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
Tonight I received this picture from my stamping friend Cyndie taken of us standing on the ledge of the Willis (Sears) Tower on our recent visit in Chicago ... I will confess I had to back myself onto the ledge and kept my eyes focused on the camera the entire time.
