Hello everyone!

Day 5 of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge.

Today I’m playing along with the latest Case This Sketch challenge with the fabulous new colour combo over at the Color Throwdown (pink, aqua, lavender and mint).

I must admit, I spent a LONG time mulling over my entry for the sketch challenge. It’s a fabulous sketch but I wanted to use a wood-mounted sentiment stamp AND incorporate some colouring! Eventually I alighted on one of my newer wood stamps, Yay by Hero Arts. I embossed it using white powder, masked off the letters and blended some Distress Oxide over the background before colouring the letters using my Zig Color Clean Brush markers and some regular distress ink.

Then I had to figure out what to use on the background – as I didn’t feel one of my leafy swirl dies would fit with the sentiment. I was flicking through my dies and stumbled on the Hero Arts Party Confetti Fancy background die and thought its elements could work quite nicely with a bit of careful placement. So I cut it from a distress oxide panel and arranged the streamers in a similar pattern et voila! My completed entry!

Thanks for stopping by!
