Technostamper Challenge #21 - True Friend

Monday's Sketch Challenge from Technostamper.blogspot.com is up! Today's sketch #21 is another good one from Mary Jo; this is a good sketch to showcase your Designer Paper and perhaps use up some of the smaller pieces left from other projects.

It's really overcast and rainy here today so it took me a little while to get a photo. I ended up by a big window and also using my Ott-Lite to try get to the colors as true as possible. But I'm thankful for the rain.

Strips of Bali Breeze Designer Paper form the background and the color scheme. The focal image is the thank you from True Friend and the small flowers stamp is from A Beautiful Thing. I wheeled the background with Tempting Turquoise and the Rough Texture wheel, one of my favorite ways to get some visual texture and quickly fill in a background that doesn't really compete with your main images.

Stamps: True Friend, A Beautiful Thing, Rough Texture (jumbo wheel)
Inks: Groovy Guava, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Bali Breeze DP; Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Groovy Guava, Whisper White cs.
Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, Groovy Guava stitched grosgrain ribbon, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Dimensionals, Jumbo wheel handle, Vintage silver diamond-shaped brad (retired)

Be sure and check out http://technostamper.blogspot.com for Mary Jo's card and links to other participating stampers! Try the sketch yourself also and put a link in your comments on my or Mary Jo's blog. Have fun stampin'!

Thanks for dropping by! Happy Monday everyone!
