Tuesday Morning Sketches #268!

Good morning! This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we're working with one of my own sketches, and I even pulled out an NBUS stamp to work with :) Melissa is sponsoring this week with a $10 gift card to Simon Says Stamp - now couldn't we all use that?!

Supplies: Hero Arts flower & sentiment stamps; Spectrum Noir markers; Bo Bunny patterned papers; Spiced Marmalade & Festive Berries distress inks; Tumbled Glass Distress Stickles; Claudine Hellmuth orange paint; classic small circle Nesties

I inked the sentiment stamps with both distress inks to get a richer colour. After colouring the flower (which is my NBUS!) I filled in the centre with Distress Stickles and the dots with orange dimensional paint.

Here's my sketch:

This challenge is open until next Sunday, September 28  hop on over & see what the design team has created for you!

I'm also going to enter my card & the next into Darnell's latest NBUS challenge - this Hero Arts flower stamp has been languishing in my drawer for nearly 2 years. I went with option two - make 2 cards using the same stamp. Once it saw ink, it wanted to play again :)
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Supplies: Hero Arts flower stamp; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir markers; Paper Smooches sentiment; background created using Glimmer Mists & an unknown embossing folder (Yellow Daisy, Turquoise Blue, Key Lime mists) and then inked with Mustard Seed & Squeezed Lemonade distress inks; Tumbled Glass Distress Stickles

I didn't think of it until later, but the layout is even similar! 
The NBUS challenge is open until Thursday if you've been waiting to enter - hurry up!

Darnell said...

Great sketch, Jessi, and two fabulous cards! That blossom is marvelous, I can see why you wanted to have another play with it, even without the NBUS option! I'm swooning over that second card you made in my fave colors!! Thank you so much for promoting and playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
