Virtual Swap Using Beate's WSC37

There are a lot of "virtual check marks" next to this card! I made it for the virtual swap that Danyelle is hosting, I used Beate's WSC37 (that's last week's), and it's also my last card for March's Firecracker Designs by Pamela DT (I had the So Hoppy Together set). Whew!


I had fun with this sketch. I just noticed though that I am missing the extra horizontal panel under the main image - because it's not on my printout that I was working from!! My black ink cartridge has been slowly dying (today it went kaput completely in the middle of printing) and it printed the background as one piece instead of 2 shades of grey that Beate has on her sketch. Oops!!

I actually made another card using this sketch too, but you can't see it yet. *g* Look for it in April on the Clear Artistic Stamps website as part of my guest designer duties!

But that's for later. This card came together pretty well considering that I was really searching for my mojo when I sat down to stamp. The colors here are Basic Black, GP 110# white, Ballet Blue and So Saffron. Inks are Palette Haystack, SU Ballet Blue and Sahara Sand. I used white rub-ons from the SAB package inside the Hodegpodge frame, and a Quickie glue pen to add the Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers. Did a little splatter pattern from SU's Itty Bitty backgrounds on the Ballet Blue piece. Pretty no-frills, but I like the clean lines that it ended up with.

Could that Silver Hodegpodge kit *be* any more fun?! Danyelle sent me a couple of pieces to use for the swap since I didn't pre-order one, but I think I'm going to have to do so before the Occasions Mini is over!

5 people made my day!:
