I'm excited to be joining Skipping Stones Design this month as their guest sketch designer. I had a blast hosting the sketch challenges back in January, so when Heather asked me to come back, I was thrilled! SSD is welcoming a new group of guest designers as well, and let me just say, I'm so honored to be in their company! A full meet-and-greet is available HERE on the Skipping Stones Design site.
New sketches are posted each Tuesday on the SSD blog, where you'll also find all the participation details. Hope you'll play along!
I drew up this sketch with the gorgeous background image from Timeless Textures in mind. I thought it would be perfect for the embossed resist technique. I stamped in Versamark onto watercolor paper, then clear embossed. Next I brushed on a generous helping of water, then added color with a combination of Distress Stains (Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint, and Antique Linen), Maya Mists, and Glimmer Mist. You might be able to see some of the shimmer in this detail shot, which also shows the beautiful music-themed butterfly image from Heartsong.
Thanks for visiting! My little guy returns to preschool today and I've decided my summer survival reward will be four hours of uninterrupted daylight stamp time! Can't wait!
