TSSC #61 Friends 24/7

It's Monday again and time for Monday Sketch Challenge #61. This is a simple sketch with a couple of interesting details. It has lots of possibilities for many different types of stamps, and especially larger images.

I used my new set, the lovely Friends 24/7 and the coordinating wheel Friendly Words. The background is Bordering Blue wheeled with Friendly Words then layered on olive. The large scallops were punched with the Rounded Tab Punch. I stamped the bird and branch with Basic Brown on Bordering Blue cardstock then watercolored with a Blender Pen, AquaPainter and ink refills, then cut out.

The sentiment is the new Oval All set of 4 images which fit the Large Oval punch. This was colored then layered onto a scalloped oval, which was punched out with the brand-new Scalloped Oval Punch. This is one of the items from the new Occasions Mini Catalog which will be available for order on April 1st (demos get to pre-order this month).

Stamps: Friends 24/7, Oval All, Friendly Words (jumbo wheel).Inks: Bordering Blue, Basic Brown, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard.
Paper: Bordering Blue, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
Tools: Rounded Tab Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Paper Snips
Accessories: Rich Regal Brads, Dimensionals.
