I nearly missed it being Saturday and its actually now Sunday here in Sydney but its still Saturday in some parts of Australia – like Perth and Brisbane!
Here is this week’s Diva Sketch Challenge for the Utah Diva’s International group.
I think this sketch, like last week’s, has lots of possibilities so you might just see more cards done using this sketch during the upcoming week.
One of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is you get to do a pre-order for upcoming mini catalogues and the new Idea Book & Catalogue. We havent seen the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue yet but we did receive a selection of new stamps and accessories we could pre-order from.
I was lucky enough to be able to get a couple of the new sets and they arrived this past week and they have been patiently waiting on my cupboard to be inked so I thought I’d use some with this sketch.
So here is my very first card using the Echoes of Kindness Stamp Set which will be a Level 2 Hostess set in the upcoming Idea Book & Catalogue. I’ve also used some of the new In Colour cardstock and inks.
I’ve stamped the two flower images onto Stampin’ Up! Water colour paper in Jet Black Stazon and watercoloured the images using the ink pads and the aqua painter.
The blue flowers are done in Baja Breeze then highlighted with Pacific Point. The pink flower is done in Pink Pirouette then highlighted with Riding Hood Red and the leaves are done with Kiwi Kiss. The sentiment is stamped in the gorgeous Pacific Point classic ink.
I just know youre going to fall in love with these new In Colours just as I have! When they were first introduced in USA I only liked the Pink Pirouette – its such a gorgeous soft pink! From seeing the girls in USA use them they grew on me and now I just cant wait to share them with you!
I hope you like my card and are getting excited about the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue – well I know I am and hoping we’ll recieve our copy soon!
