Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #120

Written by: iwona    7 Comments

Happy Easter, peeps! Hehe. Here’s a wee new sketch for ya’, will you make time this long weekend to play along?

The inspiration for the sketch lies in Altenew‘s Painted Flowers which I was itching to try in black &white. However, it took a lot of effort not to add the tiniest bit of colour to the background since they look so beautiful multi-stamped. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out my card from when I did them in full colour for the Altenew opening blog hop.

The perseverance paid off though, I think. They’re still utterly lovely. I added a pop of colour elsewhere, on two Simon Says Stamp Medium Tags which I cut in PTI Lavender Moon / Lemon Tart and stamped with PTI inks. The sentiment comes from the brand new Hand Lettered Hello from WPlus9, which I’ve been refraining from inking (along with the rest of the April release) to savour the projects for my introductory week more (SOON!). Alas, I failed and heck, I’m far from regretting it. LOL
