Stamplorations

Evening.
Just realized that if I didn't get a move on I would miss the sketch challenge over at Stamplorations. I've been meaning to join in since I received my stamp club stamps a couple of weeks ago.
Anyway better late than never. I love the daisies on the set I chose from Shery, so I have been itching to have a play. I thought the fates were against me as I smudged the last stamp on the panel and when I tried to start again my heat gun refused to work! So luckily I managed to trim the worst of it off so hopefully you can't tell. I was also keen to join the fun over at Fusion as the photo is of some gorgeous daisies and blue cornflowers. This is my card.


This the sketch

Now when I saw my fabulously talented teamie from ATSM, Dee's card over at Fusion, I was blown away so this is my homage to her fab card.
I used the angled daisy from the  Bloom Sketches set and heat embossed in white detail powder and then coloured it using DIs in weathered wood, squeezed lemonade and scattered straw. I added a wash of salty ocean and chipped sapphire then added leaves in mowed lawn. After trimming down I added a couple of pale lemon ribbon strips to match the sketch. I popped up the finished panel on pads then added the sentiment from the same Stamplorations set on a tab.


I shall also enter the ongoing STAMPlorations challenge - Anything goes
STAMPlorations - October Challenge -Stamps and embossing 
OK, I suppose I must get on with the tea - chilli duck legs with stir fry veggies,yum.
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
