Let me surround you, my sea to your shore...let me be the calm you seek...

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Thanks for all the get well wishes...I'm feeling a bit better, just taking it easy today and trying to drink lots of water.

I did a little bit of late-night stamping, and I was excited to see that today's Sketch Challenge was posted before I was ready for bed. So I decided to sit down and play!

I chose Anna Wight's Simply Bloom set from Whipper Snapper. I stamped the flower twice in Stazon on Watercolor paper, then drew the stems and added leaves with my Stampamajig. I colored the image with my waterbrush & reinkers. The edges were distressed with my Tonic Distressor tool, then I matted the panel with black and punched one side with the Scalloped Edge punch from Stampin' Up.

The base layer is Blush Blossom, and I sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango, then Close to Cocoa, and then a bit of Black. For the strip across the card, I matted a piece of Olive May Arts satin ribbon with black cardstock. Then I added three brads to the bottom right corner, and the sentiment framed with a piece of hardware from the We R Memory Keepers kit. Some twine to the edges of the hardware and I was all done! The finished card measures 4 1/4" square.

Well, peeps, I'm off to rest some more. I hope you have a great day!
