MtS 220 - Life is Better

Time for another sketch challenge!  Match the Sketch Weekly Challenges has another clean sketch that I just had to play with this week - MtS No. 220.

MtS 220
Our bird feeders have been full of little feathery friends over the past several weeks.  It’s amazing how many times I’ve peeked out through our sliding glass door and seen them munching away.  So hopefully you can see why I chose to create this card.  I hope it inspires you in some way, too!

The striped background is my favorite technique of watercoloring with the Aqua Painter.  For this card front, I used the Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad for the ink color.  The Petal Passion DSP was colored with Stampin' Blends.  Isn't the dogwood bloom just perfect to reflect the circle in the sketch?!

I did not think the front needed a sentiment as it would take away from the serenity of the design, so the heartfelt saying was stamped inside.  This makes it perfect for anyone who brings a smile to your face!

Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the world.  I hope this has inspired you to enjoy using more than one color technique as you create and get inky!  Have a blessed day!
