Here's my card for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge! For this sketch challenge, I chose to create a little flower scene. I've used stamps from the Paper Smooches Daisies and Paisleys set, paper piecing the flowers and leaves. The patterned papers are from the Pebbles Sunnyside line. For the stems, I simply cut skinny strips of paper and added marker detail to both sides to create a faux 'stamped' stem. This was a tricky sketch for me, but I had fun putting together this cheery card! :)
I am an artist who specializes in hand-stamped greeting cards and card kits. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a broad area art major. While in college, I studied fine arts and graphic design. I started stamping over 14 years ago and it has become my ultimate passion in life. I enjoy sharing techniques and projects with other stampers. I teach card making classes at the Pine City Scrapbooking Co. and find it so rewarding to share what I love with others.
