STAMPlorations Sketch challenge #17

This is my second post today - please scroll down (or click HERE) for the House of Cards post there is a challenge starting there today too!
---

I just love the STAMPlorations sketches - they are always a little different from what else is out there in blog land and make you think differently. This sketch I really liked.



I used the using Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments set here. I first stamped the daisy with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I then took a square punch and some recycled card stock to use as a stencil and sponged in yellow. I rotated the stencil and masked off the yellow square and sponged the remaining triangle in orange and repeated it once more to sponge in pink. I outlined the squares with a black pen to give it more definition and stamped the sentiment. Splattered black and yellow all over the card and added the enamel dots. 

Here is the sketch:




Our team has fabulous inspiration cards for you , so head over to the BLOG and we also have a wonderful guest designer this month - its Kim M from Art Keeps Me Sane - I am sure you all know her, if not you better go and check her out - you won't regret it, I promise!

Cornelia - love, love and love this card! Such a stunning showcase of the bloom. I initially thought you placed it on layered papers, but no: you masked it!! Triple awesome!
