More Shower Time Fun!

Here’s another card using this week’s Sketch Challenge and another look at the soon to be released (Sept. 1st) Shower Time set from My Favorite Things 🙂

The backgrounds were all created with ink and stamps from the Behind The Scenes set from My Favorite Things.

Pencil Tin

My Favorite Things is set to release a new set (Shower Time) and a fun package special called My Favorite 48 on Sept 1st!! You can find the details HERE . This fun pencil tin is one part of the special! Fun and really easy to decorate, this project came together very quickly!

I stamped a strip of Pretty in Pink in a fun flower pattern and then matted it in Purely Pomegranate. I attach this strip with sticky strip. I then stamped the polka dot panel and matted it, attaching with foam tape. Added the layered flower and ribbon and it was done!

Who Needs Patterned Paper?

As much as I love beautiful patterned paper, I end up creating more backgrounds with stamps than using it.

This is one of those backgrounds that just evolved as it was made. I stamped the paisley in Purely Pomegranate on Pretty in Pink CS. It just didn’t have enough pop so I went back and watercolored parts of the paisley with Purely Pomegranate ink and an Aquapainter and added some sponging on the edge. The last step on the background (because sometimes I just can’t stop myself) was to add some white dots with a Signo gel pen.
