ISSC26 - Thinkng of You

There's a new iSpy Sketches Challenge ready and waiting for you!  It's a bittersweet day for me.  Today is my last post as an iSpy Sketches DT member.  While I am excited to be moving on to new adventures as part of the Kraftin' Kimmie DT, I am sad to be leaving such an amazingly talented group of designers.  I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out how in the heck I made it into this group of crafty rock stars led by the one an only Kim Teasdale!  I have had a blast being part of this group of F-U-N women and I am so thankful for having been part of this DT for the past 6 months!

Now, on to the challenge!

Therese Calvird is serving us up with a hefty dose of crafty inspiration for this week's challenge.  It is THIS stunning CAS card of hers that is the inspiration for this week's challenge.

Here's my take on the sketch:

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought to pull out one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp sets called Delicate Blossoms.  I stamped the image in Momento Tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card.  I colored the image with copics and added some shimmer to the base of the blossoms with a clear At You Spica pen.  I stamped the A Muse Studios woodgrain background stamp on PTI melon berry CS with VersaMark Ink. The sentiment is from the SU Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  I matted the image panel and the background panel with PTI terracotta tile CS and mounted that on a Bazzill Card Stock marshmallow CS card base.  

Here is the sketch:
