First, I’d like to announce an invitation for you to join me for a World Card Making Day Stamp Camp that will take place on October 4th, 2008 here in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Three very close friends/demos and myself have planned & organized a fun-filled event with ***AWESOME PROJECTS***. The day will start with a provided Continental Breakfast. Stamping fun is from 9am-1pm. The cost to attend is $25. Want to be my guest and get “stamp pampered”? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to guarantee your spot. I will email you an invoice with all the details/directions. I’d love to spend this day teaching and stamping with family and friends:)
How about a challenge? Have you missed them? Drum roll and a big welcome back to Beate’s weekend sketch challenges🙂 Here is what I came up with:
I just love pink coneflowers. They are scattered throughout my flowerbeds. When I received this set, I instantly wanted to re-create the flowers around my home. How I did my petals: applied Pink Pirouette ink to stamp; applied Riding Hood Red to the tip of my finger; starting at petals edge (furthest away from stem), I pulled my inked finger through the ink on the stamp; stamp on cardstock to get a watercolored realistic image with a unique pattern to the petals. You can use whatever technique you’d like to achieve this look. I’m one to use whatever I have to achieve a certain look…and that means walking around with red finger tips for 2 days lol. See closeup below.
You can see more samples for Beate’s wsc at the sites of these very talented ladies:
