Hi all! Hope you had a great weekend! My kids and I are in Wisconsin, visiting family. Today we went to a small town fireman’s parade and were lucky enough to see a small group of kids from the UW Madison marching band. They always put on such a great performance!
Since we are here for almost a month, I opted to bring crafting supplies with me. I have all of my MFT dies in binders, so I brought them with my Big Shot along, as well as a good selection of MFT stamps, some embellishments and card stock. I brought NO PATTERNED PAPER with me — how could I pick packs to bring with? Way too difficult! Background stamps to the rescue!
For this week’s sketch, I pulled out my Gingham Background Stamp and Birdie Brown Every Day is a Picnic. I only brought a small handful of Copics, so my choices were limited, but thankfully, the colors worked with my card stock and ink choices! I stamped a piece of Grout Grey with the Gingham in Electric Red. I cut a big fishtail tag with Blueprints 13, which I stamped some grass and a butterfly, as well as the sentiment. Birdie Brown is cut out with her coordinating die and popped up on dimensionals. The centers of her flowers and her straps are filled with a Souffle pen in yellow — my mother-in-law sent me a set for my birthday and they are AWESOME!
If you check out this picture, you can see the yellow centers are slightly more amplified (I was in the sun a lot today and I’m having a hard time coming up with a better word! LOL!)
