STAMPlorations is out with a new sketch challenge and I'm going to play along with their sketch and Crafty Calendar Challenge's Bingo board:
STAMPlorations has some amazing challenges and last month I won the Sketched: Tulips stamp. I just got it in the mail last week and have been itching to ink it up. If you haven't checked out their challenges - DO IT! You don't have to use their stamps to play, and they give away some awesome prizes! If you do have their stamps, you can play in their never-ending Anything Goes challenge, which gives away a prize for every 50 entries.
I used a piece of light pink vellum and embossed the tulips in white and then painted them with some sparkly watercolors that my grandma gave me a long, long time ago. It created this lovely stained glass effect.
I layered it over some bright green polka-dotted vellum and added a little pink bling the corners and then stamped the sentiment in Distress Inks Picked Raspberries. It's an adorable little thank you card that will be sent over to one of my business colleagues who helped me out recently.
I'm also entering this into Eclectic Ellapu's Pink Team challenge - Flowers
