I've chosen to use the sketch this week and have brought back the Ranunculus stamp from Hero Arts - it just takes my breath away! My thumbs were green by the time I completed this, by the way =]
I've stamped them twice, once on the front of the card base in black, then again on water-color CS which, after coloring in, I cut out with W+9's circle dies, then aligned them over the first stamped image. The sentiment is SSS, the yellow CS is to represent the darling yellow enamel painted coffee-can vase in the photo and, finally, a little green floss to mimic the green ribbon.
Another inking and, voila, another little something for Time Out! My 'twist' is to use this very floral stamp instead of the more graphic border stamp Anita used, and obviously using warm colors instead of cool ones, and then the bit of fussy cutting the portion of the image for use as a border - Wow, I really did the twist, didn't I? Hope I don't get a 'time out' for not following the lead =]
A bit more paint-my-own water-colored cardstock for the top layered 'love' - the under layer is cut from white CS and then white embossed, to match the embossed stamping. Once again, sorry the photo doesn't do.
