Atlantic Hearts Sketch #372

My goal for the week is to get all of the tags from the June Stamp of the Month, Garden Tags, inked up!  I really struggle with the desire to stamp vs. the need to clean house!  So, I have a quick card for today and then off to do floors!  I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

I followed the sketch fairly loosely….using my tags in place of the car shape.  I did manage to incorporate all of the parts of the sketch into my card.  To create my card, I inked up the dragonfly tag in Sapphire pigment ink and clear embossed onto water color paper.  This tag was sooo close to hitting the trash can!  I somehow managed to drop blobs of color on my finished tag.  Thankfully watercolor is a bit forgiving and I just added more water and moved the color around!  It is hard to tell from the photo, but the wings do have some sheen, thanks to a clear shimmer brush that was added over the top.

Just in case you missed the details, the June Stamp of the Month is Garden Tags.  You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5!  This set is only available during the month of June.  There are also matching Thin Cut dies as well.

  5. Great card! I'm glad that the tag didn't end up in the trash bin – great job of "saving" it! If you hadn't shared, we wouldn't have known that there was an "oops". Love the composition of your card. Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge.
