I am having one of those weeks when you feel like you are on top of stuff but then you find you are not. To help overcome some of this I like to spend time in my craft space; I can usually leave the outside world alone for a while and just decompress.
While I was in there I created a card using the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
The theme of the sketch was back to school but being in Australia we are no where near that at the moment. In fact we are just coming out of winter – well the calendar says that but the weather doesn’t seem to want to give winter up. But I know that in a few months the hotter summer weather will be here and we will be wishing for cooler weather again.
While I was looking through my stamps I saw this set. The sentiment is what made me laugh and I thought creating with it would give me a lift as well as who will end up receiving the card in the end. The cacti are individual stamps, plus others. so that you can use any combo in different pots; love this kind of stamp set. So many possibilities.
I stamped everything using my stamp platform to make sure that I got good impressions and the correct placements. Once that stamping was done I coloured them in with my Copic markers. The papers that I used are from an older Paper Rose Studio paper pack. I wanted something a little muted so that the stamping and colouring stood out.
Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation using the latest sketch from Michelle over at the AHSC. I hope that you will come along to the blog and see what the other designers have been up too and create along with us as well.
Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.
