FMS90: Simply Sketched

I just love the new hostess set called Simply Sketched. I think that all of the hostess sets are great, but this one is definitely my favorite. I got a chance to stamp for a few minutes this afternoon while the kids played outside. It was gorgeous here today- 75 and sunny! They were disappointed that it was too cool to swim, but I was happy that it wasn't terribly hot or rainy. :)

I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for my card.

And here is my card...

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Simply Sketched
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, 2013-2015 In Color DSP Stack
Ink: Strawberry Slush marker, Pistachio Pudding marker, Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar
Accessories: Scalloped Oval punch, Oval punch, pearls, sponge dauber

I wasn't totally sure how to color in this stamp. I did the marker to stamp technique, but it looked too plain without a little added color on the flower and bud. I decided to try sponging a little color on using a sponge dauber and I really like how it turned out. It was quick and easy and I like the contrast of the Strawberry Slush outline with the Crisp Cantaloupe sponging.

Thanks for stopping by! Pin It
