Paper Smooches SPARKS & PDCC #136



Good Morning! I am back today with a card to play along with two different challenges. The first is the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge - Designer Drafts



The second is the new Play Date Cafe Challenge, #136 - Azure, Raspberry and Blackberry.



Following the sketch and color scheme of the challenges above, I used my Paper Smooches Gently Seasoned Stamp set. It may be hard to tell in the picture, but I stamped part of the image on a diecut, Tag Sale #5 from PTI, and raised it up with foam squares.



That's it for now... hope you all enjoy your day with the Fathers in your lives! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Supplies:
Stamps: Paper Smooches Gently Seasoned, PTI Love Lives Here (grass)
Ink: PTI Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Plum Pudding, Scarlet Jewel
Paper: PTI Stampers Select White, Distressed Dots PP
Dies: PTI Tag Sale #5
Other: PTI Scarlet Jewel Twill Ribbon, Pop Dots, Copic Markers

What a cool technique, Audrey! I love the way the tag emphasizes part of the tree, and the tree is so soft, like watercoloring. Love it :)

Very COOL technique Audrey! WOW I LOVE the stamped tree you created!!! So glad you played in this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!

I really like this Audrey. The colors, the technique, the overall layout are wonderful. You pulled off the "layered stamping" (or whatever it's called, LOL) beautifully. I'm starting to see this technique around the blogosphere, but your example is one of the best I've come across. Bravo!

Congratulations on winning at PDCC. I can see why. The wau you gave dimension to your tree by double stamping the image and layering it is brilliant. I'll need to try that technique sometime. Blessings!
