Spring and a sketch that worked

Spring blossoms

If at first you don’t succeed go back to something tried and true. After fiddling around with a new stamp and some fussy cutting unsuccessfully I decided to create another card with last week’s sketch from CAS(E)this sketch. I know they have a new sketch up but this one really appealed and worked for me last week so I am using it again, and maybe even again.

Same technique, a masked rectangle, some sponging in blue and pink and the spotty blossoms stamped several times in pink while the masks were still in place. After I removed the masks I stamped the branch again in pink then slightly higher in black and did the same with the sentiment.

There are blossoms here in Ottawa, not in my yard, but it won’t be long.

Have you heard about the new challenge on the Penny Black blog. You can read about it here.
