As usual for me in January, I start out the year thinking that I’m going to join in more cardmaking challenges throughout the year like I used to, and then something happens that takes the proverbial wind out of my sails.  Oh well.  Anyway, here’s this year’s first attempt at this endeavor.

I’ve combined the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches with the color scheme provided by The Paper Players.  I felt like the tulip followed the lines of the mirror image of the sketch pretty well, and I stamped it using the colors from the color challenge.  Unfortunately, my Poppy Parade ink pad wasn’t as inky as I thought, and that’s the darkest I could get that color ink to work with just one impression from the stamp.  (I needed to get the card in the mail so I didn’t take the time to re-ink the ink pad or do multiple impressions with the stamp.)  It’s not one of my best cards but I really do like the sketch.


Thanks for stopping by today! Comments are always welcome and appreciated!

Edited on January 24, 2020 to add:  Thank you to Claire at The Paper Players for choosing my card as “A Cut Above”!  What an awesome surprise!
