Inky Paws Challenge #222 ~ Sketch Challenge Reminder

 Hello there crafty friend!
 There's still time to play along with the Inky Paws Challenge 222 - Sketch Challenge! You have until this coming Friday, May 10th to get your entries in for this fun challenge and a chance to win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!

I am seriously loving this sketch! And something else I seriously love is cherry blossoms. It reminds me of my grandparents and their home. They had a gorgeous cherry tree in the front yard. I loved to visit when it bloomed! So gorgeous!

It was only natural that I played with the new Cherry Blossoms Stamp Set. It's so beautiful! And a must have for my collection. I stamped the cherry blossom sprig and a few of the extra blossom on a scrap of Stampers Select White Card Stock from Papertrey Ink. I colored them up with Copic markers and then die cut them with the coordinating Cherry Blossom Die Set.

Here's a quick list of the Copic markers I used:

Blossoms / Buds: RV0000, RV10, RV02, RV14
Stem: E21, E23, E27

I set aside the pretty cherry blossoms and grabbed a card front of Stampers Select White card stock measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2". I wanted to stick with pink for a monochromatic card so I grabbed Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks and ink smooshed them on my glass table. I spritzed the ink a bit with water and then dabbed my card stock into the pools of ink leaving some white until I was happy with the background.

I die cut the ink smooshed background using the largest die from the Frames & Tags Die Set. I have to say I think this die set has become my new favorite! Of course, it works perfectly with this sketch but also I love all the components of the set. Anywho, I adhered the background to my white A2 top fold card base that I turned on it's side for a landscape card. I die cut a white frame using the frame die from the same die set. I die cut the cute little tag and stamped the 'hello'. I wrapped a bit of ivory twine around the inside of the frame and thread it through the hole of the tag and then tied a bow. I adhered the frame to the card and added foam tape to the back of the tag to pop it up. I also added foam tape to the back of all of the cherry blossoms and popped them up on the card. 

Now it's your turn to get your paws inky with your Newton's Nook Designs products and create a project using the sketch. Be sure to link up to the Inky Paws Challenge! Can't wait to see your projects!
