Vivid Vases Card

I had the urge to do some coloring (it just never gets old) and the Vivid Vases single stamp is the perfect choice for some water coloring. I used an Aqua Painter and Soft Sky ink to ever so slightly paint the left side and bottom of the vases to achieve the look of shadow and water. Thanks to my friend Sheila for teaching me that! I was so happy until I somehow got an inky partial thumb print in the upper right corner of the vases panel, so added a happy Daffodil Delight banner and button to cover up the disaster.

By the way, I thought this stamp would be more versatile for me if I separated the sentiment from the image, so I cut the two apart, and side mounted the sentiment on the wood block - it just fit on the end with a tiny bit of trimming.

FMS123 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

This is my first time participating in a Freshly Made Sketches challenge! I enjoy the simple templates this group posts nearly each week, and all the creative submissions by the readers. I chose hexagons for my 8 shapes, and had fun choosing some brighter, spring-like colors. I popped 3 of the hexies up with dimensionals to give some texture. I'm in love with the Crisp Cantaloupe twine that is included in the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, a Sale-A-Bration exclusive product.
