And since it's Saturday, that means a new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog! This week's sketch is by the lovely Mischief Maker Teresa Kline!
I can't even begin to describe how much fun it is to stamp with My Island! The set has so many different elements that can be layered and combined to create the perfect scene...and of course we can't forget Claire's unique sentiments in a super cool font!
I used patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye "On the Sunny Side" Collection...how could I pass them up? :) Once I had my color scheme set, I set to work finding as many sunny and tropical inks as I could!
To create the scene, I first stamped the distressed rectangle in light blue ink and masked out a spot to add a sun with a 7/8 inch circle. Then I went back with the negative piece and sponged it in using yellow and orange inks. The darker blue at the bottom is a separate image so you can stamp an ocean or sand separately. I finished by stamping the palm trees in chocolate ink, and cut the whole image out with one of the Deckled Edge Rectangle (small set) dies from Spellbinders. They work SO well with this set!
Tomorrow is RELEASE DAY! The Design Team will be back at 2:00 PM EST with the Release Day Blog Waltz featuring more projects with all of the stamp sets...including a FABULOUS one that we've been keeping a secret all week :) Be sure to stop by Claire's blog to see the full reveals as well as to check out her prize information!
