Spring and a sketch that workedPosted: May 2, 2013 Filed under: CAS, So Blessed, Winter Berries 13 Comments
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.

Heather, I always LOVE your work! It is very clean and classy looking, and simple enough that I am not overwhelmed! I may even be brave enough to try making a card using some of your techniques! Thanks so much for sharing! It is very inspiring.
This is so pretty, I love the technique. I really need to try the masking more. Love the look!
Yet once again, a card that I love. Your technique always looks so clean, classy & elegant…I keep trying to achieve something even close….You’re a great inspiration, TFS….
What a delightful card! The black blossom stamped against the delicate blue/pink is very striking indeed. Nice. I like this a lot.
You are the queen of sponging!
Very pretty! 🙂
Simply beautiful! I loved this sketch too and plan to use it more.
Oh wow, Heather! This is so beautiful! I always worry about doing shadow stamping as when I do it it just looks like I’ve gone wrong! yours always looks perfect
SOOO FABULOUS Heather. So stylish and lovely.
So pretty. Loved how you over stamped the branches.
Thank you,you always share such unique techniques, I want to try this double stamping,if mine turns out half as good as yours ill be pleased! X
I really like the way the silhouette stamp extends beyond the masked background. So pretty. 🙂
This is beautiful.
