I created this card for Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT). I've wanted to try one of her sketches for some time, and I finally took the time to sit down and work on this week's sketch.

This is my take on Jen's sketch:

I had a lot of fun with this color combination - Real Red, Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss. I used my Dreams du Jour set, which hasn't seen any ink in quite awhile. I'm trying to pull out some of my current sets that I haven't used lately. I get stuck in a new stamp frenzy and tend to neglect my previously used sets.

I stamped the main image three times, twice in Black Staz-On ink, and once in Kiwi Kiss ink. I colored the Staz-On image using my ink pads and Aqua Painter and I cut out the word "dreams" from the Kiwi Kiss image and adhered it over the "dreams" on the colored image. I colored the large flower on the third image and cut it out and I used Dimensionals to pop it out on the main image. I like throwing the Real Red in the mix - there is just a hint of it in the Raspberry Tart dsp, and pulling in the grosgrain ribbon and buttons really give this card it's flair.

Stamps: Dreams du Jour
Paper: Real Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart dsp, Bella Rose dsp
Ink: Black Staz-On, Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon, Real Red buttons, Mat Pack, paper piercer, Dimensionals
