Are you a member of the SCS fan club?? The fan club gallery is a source of great inspiration and now fan club members can participate in monthly sketch challenges!! This is my entry and I love how the colors came out.

Supplies used:

Paper: Teal, green galore and white

Ink: Palette Noir, green galore, Zia Colorwash

Other: Acetate, die cuts, clear drying glue (elmers), tissue paper

Stamps: Fantasy Floral Garden by Flourishes


-Stamp images on acetate with Palette Noir, let dry and turn acetate over
-On the reverse side of the acetate, apply glue covering the acetate completely. Spray on Zia colorwash (I used citron and blue topaz) and gently mix the ink into the glue. You can also use a couple of drop of reinkers for this technique.
-Crumble up a piece of tissue paper, then uncrumble and place over the glued and inked acetate. Let dry – this may take several hours!
-Mount on green galore and white.
-Stamp other images with green galore an a piece of green galore paper. Stamp small floral image in Palette Noir in lower right corner
-Punch or die cut two ovals, one in white and one in teal. Stamp “Bloom” in Palette Noir on the white and sponge with green galore.
-Attach all pieces as shown.
