Guess what?! I used another one of my much neglected never seen ink SU! stamp sets! Woo hoo! This one is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge #51 - not only does she come up with some awesome inspiration pieces she also does sketch challenges, which sadly I do not get around to playing with as much as I would like... not enough hours in the day to stamp! :) However I did have time for her latest sketch and the inspiration challenge which you can see my sample for tomorrow morning. Yes... you have to wait!
Quick notes for my simple card: ink branch stamp with markers and stamp on white cardstock. I inked the bird with the Ruby Red Classic pad (using a marker was blotching the image too much) and then colored the legs with the Chocolate Chip marker before stamping above the branch. Randomly stamp the flower stamp on a piece of Ruby Red cardstock in the same color. I'd stamp a couple of times before re-inking the stamp. Paper pierce the bottom edge and knot a piece of River Rock Double-stitched ribbon across the top. Next create a scalloped border from River Rock cardstock with the small corner rounder and adhere to the Ruby Red piece before adding the whole panel to the Old Olive card base. Add the main image with dimensionals. Finally stamp "thank you" on a scrap of Ruby Red cardstock, trim, add a brad to the upper left corner and glue to the card with more dimensionals. Me likey dimensionals... a lot! :)
