I got my new Whipper Snapper stamps yesterday, so I had to ink them up right away. This image was perfect for the Sketch Challenge, so I went right to work.
I love this Bowl of Cherries stamp by Anna Wight...I've been drooling over it and finally had to break down once I saw that she released a chicken set. You know me and farm animals...I can't resist. I also ordered Sweet Expressions...mostly for the sentiment I used on this card. I LOVE IT!!! I colored the image with my Copic markers, cut some extra bottom cherries out and popped them up on dimensionals, and then added some shine with Diamond Glaze. The Saffron panel was embossed with the D'Vine Swirls folder, and then sponged it with Marigold Morning ink to brighten it up a bit. Then I embossed the Real Red square with the Swiss Dots folder and swiped the edges with my White Craft pad. I also rubbed the edges of the Kraft base with my White Craft ink, and did some faux stitching after I stamped my sentiment.
The ribbon is something I found at Hobby Lobby this week...it's in the Christmas/Holiday craft isle, and it's $1.99 for a 5 yd spool, and 1/2 price this week! They have several different colors...I think I need to go back and get more!!
In other news, I was able to talk Josh into getting one of my mom's kittens!! I had fallen in love with this one, and after cuddling with her today, I just had to have her.
Have a fabulous day!
