Hello-Sketch Week


Hello, I hope you are doing well. It is time for Sketch Week at The Paper Players and Ann has come up with a really fun one this time around. I had this idea rolling around in my head for a few days and although I like it enough it didn’t turn out quite like I had planned. That happens some times. Also, I ended up doing the flowers first and the brick stencil work last and if you look really closely the blue must not have been dry enough as it smeared when I was doing the wall. I love blue and brown together…do you?

Over at Addicted to Stamps and More they have a challenge to use Stencils and or Die-cuts on your project. I have used both.

Card Details: Stamps are from SU- called Painted Harvest, the small brick stencil is from MFT , the greeting is from Papertrey Ink.
