Skipping Stones Sketch #114!

I took a bit of a blogging hiatus for the past few weeks as we’ve been running around like maniacs and feeling super busy. It was needed to stay ahead on our day-to-day happenings, but I really missed it! Hoping some of the craziness subsides and we see some of our time come back to us. ;)

This week we welcome some new guests for February and not only that, but you can get the first peek at a new set being released in April! In case you missed the SSD post yesterday, these talented ladies are joining us for the month of February! Kazan Clark is our Guest Sketch Artist, and we have  Barb Turpin and Cyndi Bundy joining us as our Guest DT members!

First up, here’s the sketch we have to work with this week.

I choose to use Victorian Summer and some pretty floral patterned paper (Crate Paper) for a simple birthday card. You can never have too many of those in your stash!

For the large flower I stamped in Red Riding Hood ink on Neutrals White cardstock, and then used an orangeish colored pencil and a blender pen to fill it in.  Funny you would think it would be more of a pink color, but the orange looked best with the ink for the desired effect I was hoping to achieve. The lace was a nice pairing for an elegant/shabby look.

Last, here’s an excellent stamping deal and a peek at a set that is sure to be one of my favorites! You can get Heartsong 2 (the follow up to the super popular Heartsong and Christmas Song) before it’s release in April for FREE today! If you buy any three Skipping Stones Designs stamp sets starting today through next Tuesday before midnight you get Heartsong 2 absolutely free and pre-release!
