This week's Sketch & Stash has a simple and very usable sketch to follow, with your choice of if and where embellishments and sentiments go. From my stash I've used some Hero Arts clear stamps that I really struggle with and which have consequently been neglected. The tree and the owl are part of a large set with a long tree branch. I find the stamps just impossible to ink up successfully with anything other than a one-colour inkpad such as a Versafine, even that doesn't take too well, colours just bead on the surface and seem to vanish. If anyone has suggestions for how to make the stamps more usable I'd love to hear them! These stamps are my old stash.
For this card I've used Marvy le Plumes and spent HOURS going over and over the colours, they still look pretty faint :(. The owl and the sentiment are easy, the were copper embossed so no problems there. Basic Grey paper is new stash that I won from a challenge on Papercraftplanet.
