Stampin' Royalty Sketch Challenge #39

Good Morning! I have some exciting news to share! I've been asked to join the Stampin' Royalty Design Team!!! What an honor! I've been playing along with the challenges from this fabulous group of Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for awhile and now I get to join their team!
This week we're hosting a sketch challenge (which is actually my favorite type of challenge) so I gladly got my stamps out and here's what I created:
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • So I don't have and oval die or cutter to go along with the sketch, so I had to improvise! I simply cut and layered cardstock into a rectangle and rounded one corner to help frame in my Hydrangea image from the Level 1 Hostess set, Because I Care!
  • Hopefully you can tell from the close up picture below, but to add some dimension to the Hydrangea, I stamped the image a second time, and trimmed out a few small clusters of flowers and adhered them to my first image using Stampin' Dimensionals! You can also use a small flower punch too - since the flowers don't need to be perfect! They blend in really well with the larger image once layered together!
  • My color scheme was inspired by the Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Gala DSP papers! I chose to use Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobler, Old Olive, Whisper White and Early Espresso! The Stampin' Up! DSP packs are instant color inspiration if you're ever in a jam!
