Sketch Saturday


Wow - I've found out about a technique that I just LOVE - it's stamping on tissue paper (with stazon) - I used a very pale blue, then scrunching it up and sticking it onto a piece of cardstock to give a textured effect. Although this is my first attempt, and I'm not overly pleased with my colouring, I think the effect is brilliant, and am sure to be doing this again in the very near future!! Oh, and I made this for todays Sketch Saturday sketch!
Stamps used: summer by the sea (Stampin' Up)
Inks used: stazon, markers
Cardstock used: Stampin' Up dp
Other Embellishments: SU ribbon
Tools: my new martha stewart punch!, gems
