Springy Sketch

Hi everyone - it's time for a fun OCC sketch. I flipped this week's sketch, putting the smaller panel at the bottom of my card.

I wanted a soft colour combo with a little pop, so I've used Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla and a hint of Sage Shadow.

I've used a couple of stamp sets - Whimsical Words and Vintage Vogue - love those flowers! I've used the Rock and Roll technique, inking the flowers first in pink, then lightly rolling the edges in guava before stamping. The background was created by repeatedly stamping the flourish from Vintage Vogue then using the Colour Spritzer tool with a Sage Shadow marker to add some speckles of colour before sponging the edges.

I've repeated the flower on the inside of the card, as well as the spritzing after masking the area with paper.

Head on over to the OCC Sketch Blog and see what my awesome stamping buddies have created with this sketch!
